Haggs Castle GC held their Finals day in glorious sunshine

Haggs Castle Golf Club'a  champions 2019.
L to R - Lindsay Wood, Gents Champion, Susan Ramsay, Ladies Champion, Alfie Henighen, Seniors Champion and Louis Fleming, Junior Champion.
The Haggs Castle Golf Club  men's championship over 36 holes pitted Craig Morrison, three times club champion, against Lindsay Wood, a newcomer to the final but previously club champion at Downfield GC, Dundee. 
Craig established a three- hole lead after 18 holes. In the afternoon round Lindsay came back strongly and was one up with four holes to play.  Craig birdied the 34th hole. The 35th was halved.  Craig encountered tree trouble off the tee with Lindsay long and straight down the fairway.  Lindsay was on the front of the par 5 green in 2 and Craig on in 4.  Craig holed a long putt for a 5, forcing Lindsay to hole a short putt for a birdie and the championship, which he did bravely.
In the women's final over 18 holes, we had twp players new to the Final: Susan Ramsay, formerly a four times women's champion at Williamwood GC and Jeannie Tsang. Susan played very well with solid pars forcing Jeannie into mistakes. Susan ran out the winner by 9 and 7.
The Junior Championship featured twp players who have had many good results this year: Louis Fleming, winner in 2017 and 2018 and winner of the Glasgow Golf Union Boys Strokeplay and beaten finalist in the GGU Boys match-play, and Andrew Forbes, winner of the GGU Boys Match-play and  semi-finalist at the Haggs Castle  Club Championship in which  he lost to Craig Morrison.
Louis played extremely well, reaching the end of the first 18 holes in two under par and being five up.  Andrew was in a difficult situation and despite two birdies in a row around the turn of the second 18 holes he was unable to prevent Louis winning by 7 and 5.
In the inaugural Seniors Championship David McNeill, Club Champion in 2017, played Alfie Henighen.  This was an extremely tight game with very little between  players.  Alfie eventually won the 18th to win the match by one hole.
