Home players fall in Renfrewshire county match-play championship

Played again on a beautiful evening on a course in great condition most of the matches were very close.
Despite some large early leads by a number of the competitors they were all pegged back by some dogged play by their opponents.
Jamie Sinnamon was four down after five holes and was never in front until he holed a birdie putt on 16, matched by a birdie on 17 by his opponent. However, a poor drive on 18 by Furhan Iqbal, resulting in a lost ball, gave victory to Jamie Sinnamon.
Alex Ferguson was three up after 12 but again his opponent came back at him and he was one up coming down the last, where both made birdie for Alex to win by one hole.
Colin Edgar was four up early on but Conor Toal made him fight all the way before finally winning on the 16th.
In the final game Stuart Thomas always appeared to be in charge in this tight match, never behind but always pressed by Kevin Christie until he won on the 17th.
Colin Edgar now remains to carry the flag for the home club with the semi-finals and final played on Sunday 28th August at Elderslie Golf  Club with an 8.45 start.
Jamie Sinnamon (Greenock Whinhill) bt Furhan Iqbal (Gleddoch) 1 hole
Alex Ferguson (Paisley) bt Robbie McLeod (Elderslie) 1 hole
Colin Edgar (Elderslie bt Conor Toal (Old Course Ranfurly) 3 and 2.
Stuart Thomas (Erskine) bt Kevin Christie (Elderslie) 2 and 1
