John Woodhouse Wins Lanarkshire Men's Match-play Title

John Woodhouse, an 18 years old junior and four handicapper, defied the odds to beat the experienced Ed Wood, plus three Lanarkshire golfer,  of Crow Wood by 2 and 1 in the final.   
This was a replay of the final after they finished all square after 21 holes last month
 John was once again fast out the traps and was two up through ten with a mixture of birdies and fantastic short game skills. Ed looked to be back in it at one down with three to go but a birdie at 16 and par at 17 secured the win for young John, a member of host club East Kilbride. 
His younger brother, 15 years old Alan off a 5 handicap caddied for him in all his matches. John and Allan are pictured on right.
