 John Jack junior wins Renfrewshire Boys' Champion of Champions' title

John Jack junior (Gourock) beat Jonny Murphy (Erskine) 5 and 3 in the final of the Renfrewshire Golf Union Boys' Champion of Champions' competition at Paisley Golf Club on Sunday, April 21, once again generously sponsored by Greenlaw Garage, Paisley, 
The match was a bit of a scrappy affair early on with Murphy going one up with a birdie at the second, but some poor course management by both players saw Jack two  up after five holes, and three up after the eighth.
Murphy won the ninth and the next three holes were halved before Jack took command as his opponent failed to make par at 13.
The game was finally closed out when Jack holed his first putt of any size at the 15th to win by 5 and 3.
In Friday's  semi-finals  Murphy beat Johnny Greig (Old Ranfurly) by two holes and Jack beat Cameron Percy (Fereneze) 5 and 4.
On the previous Sunday, Greig had a walk over as defending champion Roddy McAuley was playing in a Scottish Golf event at Montrose. Murphy beat Andrew Brisbane (Ranfurly Castle)  2 and 1, John Jack beat Michael Lees (Whitecraigs) and Cameron Percy beat Jack Tourish (Elderslie) 3 and 2.
In the preliminary rounds Greig beat Euan Urquhart (Paisley) 2 ad 1, Jonny Murphy had a walk over against Liam Lawell (East Renfrewshire), who failed to appear, while Jack Tourish beat Aaron McCue (Greenock Whinhill) 5 and 4.
