Gwent Boys Matchplay Championship
which was played at Greenmeadow Golf Club on Monday/Tuesday 28th/29th
While the course was quite wet in places after the torrential rain on
Saturday the greens were in excellent condition and a tribute to the Green
Oliver Moss came into the draw as a late replacement being the next highest placed qualifier. He won his first match against Piers Murphy by 3 & 2 on Monday morning and birdied the last against tournament favourite Dan Bearcroft to win by 2 Holes.
The Final on Tuesday morning between Oliver Moss and Logan Westley was a very close affair, with Logan going 2 Up at one stage only for Oliver to
claw his way back into the match. The match was all square after 16 holes
only for Logan to 3 Putt the 17th to give Oliver a one hole lead. Logan just
shaved the hole on 18 for his birdie but Oliver made his birdie on the last
to win the Championship by 2 Holes.
