Matthew Clark wins Renfrewshire county stroke-play championship

The County Stroke Play Championship of the Renfrewshire Golf Union was held at a beautifully presented Elderslie Golf Club on Sunday 14 August and the courtesy of Elderslie Golf Club given to the Renfrewshire Golf Union for the use of the course during the event was much appreciated..
Matthew Clark (Kilmacolm Golf Club), pictured below, returned to county golf competition after representing Scotland in the Home Internationals at Nairn Golf Club the previous week.
His credentials as an international player were on show when he completed the morning round with a two under par round of 68 to lead by two shots from the Boys Champion of Champions Paul Dorrian (Greenock Golf Club) on 70.
One shot further back were on 71 were 3 players, Kenny Fairbrother (Cochrane Castle), David McFarlane (Greenock) and Andy Jamieson (Paisley).
In the afternoon round Matt Clark consolidated his position with a 3 under par round of 67 for a total of 135.
This proved a step too far for the other competitors with Paul Dorrian being the only one of the morning chasing pack to feature with a solid 71 for a 141 total and second place, with Stewart Watt (Old Course Ranfurly) having the only other under par round of the day a 69 to give him third place on 142 (73 – 69).
The leading available 16 qualifiers now go forward to compete in the Match Play Championship again over Elderslie Golf Club with the Semi-Final and Final held on Sunday 28th August.
Due to work commitments Matt Clark is unable to play but all other leading players are in the field.
Full results of the event can be found under Renfrewshire Golf Union on How did I Do.
