Euan Brown wins Ayrshire match-play

Euan Brown (Kilmarnock (Barassie) is the new Ayrshire match-play champion following a fine 6&5 victory over 2008 Champion Craig Hamilton (Ballochmyle) at Western Gailes today.
Brown, pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, started the match strongly and built an early two hole lead after Hamilton had driven into a fairway bunker at the 2nd and three putted the 3rd. A 20 foot putt for a half at the fourth closed the door on an early Hamilton fight back and a fine up and down from off the front of the green at the 5th saw Brown extend his lead to three.Hamilton’s putting woes continued and the match was virtually sealed when he missed short putts at the 7th, 8th and 9th to give Brown a comfortable six hole lead at the turn.
Halves in par figures at the next four holes were enough to give Brown the title on the 13th green.
It was a night that Hamilton will want to forget as he paid a heavy price for missing a number of short putts.That, however, takes nothing away from an excellent performance by Brown whose consistency both on the night and throughout the week made him a worthy champion.
