Greig Stewart (Crieff) is the Perth and Kinross county boys' match-play champion for 2011. He beat Bradley Neil (Blairgowrie) by 3 and 2 in Sunday's final at Crieff Golf Club.
Bradley won the first with a solid par after Greig failed to get up and down from the greenside bunker. Second was halved in 4s but a stone dead pitch from below the green at the third levelled the match when Bradley could not follow from a similar position.
The fourth was halved and then Bradley, unfortunate to roll into the fairway bunker at the fifth, could not match Greig's birdie 4.
Greig went further ahead at the seventh with a chip and single putt 4, after a poor approach shot. Bradley, also being short in two, was unable to get up and down, so falling two down. Greg turned three up after a birdie 4 at the ninth, again secured with an excellent chip and single putt on this long par 5.
Holes 10, 11 and 12 were all halved, the latter with two excellent par 4s, both just missing from around 10 feet with their birdie putts.
Bradley won the 13th with a solid tee shot and two putts to reduce his arrears to two holes.
However, at the 14th, Bradley three-putted from above the hole and this put Greig three up with four to play.
Bradley bravely halved the 15th with a good second putt but Greig closed it out at the next hole with another excellent, stone-dead pitch from below the green, to secure his 4, Brad missed his birdie putt for the win which would have kept it alive.
