Club Championship Finals at Hamilton Golf Club

Hamilton Golf Club staged their Club championship finals today Sunday June 25th in very blustery conditions. The men’s final was a very exciting affair with the holder Stewart Henderson one down with three to play. However he produced three stunning putts on 16, 17 and 18 to force extra holes and won the 19th with a par after his opponent Gregg  Watson found trees with his drive. This is
Stewart’s fifth championship win from ten finals.  Stewart and Gregg are pictured below.

The boys’  final was a family affair between brothers Lewis and Euan Graham.  Younger brother Lewis, 14 years old, made the better  start going out in three under par to be five up. Euan , aged  16 staged a mini rally but Lewis found another gear and  and eventually won 6/5 in this 36 hole final. Both boys will be hoping to do well next week in the Boys Scottish Amateur at Drumoig and Scotscraig starting on Friday June 30th.

Next Sunday July 2nd Hamilton stage their 36 hole Cadzow Cup tournament. It is a counting event in the LGA Order of Merit. Handicap limit is 6. There are a few spaces left. You can enter by phoning Pro Shop on 01698 282872.
