THE finals for the five matchplay competitions (three single and two doubles events) held throughout the 2020 season at Whinhill Golf Club have now been played.
The normal format for the finals –- all being played in one day — was changed because of current restrictions with the matches being played at separate times.
The prestigious Churm Trophy was won by Tommy O’Donnell, pictured, who defeated Gary Sinnamon by the score of 3&2 in a battle between two of the club’s most in-form golfers.
David Siddons claimed victory in the Auld Yins Tassie event against Denis McCabe in a closely-fought match that was decided on the 17th hole.
Andrew Mallon produced some fine golf to defeat Kevin Trainner in the Peter Graham (Strokeplay) Trophy.
Chris McDiarmid and Andrew McDonald ran out winners in the Boyd (Greensome) Trophy against the team of Paul Allan and Albert Bruce by the score 2&1.
David Adams and Jason Lindsay took the spoils in the McIntyre (Fourball) Trophy final by the score of 2&1 against the consistent team of John Donald and Michael Wright.
All finals were played in a very sporting manner and all were close affairs with three of the matches finishing on the 17th hole and another on the 16th hole.
The competitions have been well supported with the vast majority of members taking part.
The Anniversary Trophy and Hugh Graham Trophy competitions were not played this season.
Whinhill Golf Club thank Chris McDiarmid and Lee Sinnamon for their tremendous efforts over the course of a very difficult season and in the organisation of the matchplay competitions.
