Scottie won the prestigious Scratch Cup on Friday against Mr Lambross. Had to poke him for the match report.

It was a hard fought match against Andrew Lambross and truth be told he deserved his 1-up lead after nine with impressive hitting of the tee matched with all round play.
I was steady at best but up against huge(!) driving I had to be better.
Then there was a huge turn on 10, he was 3ft for birdie and I was short sided for a hard up and down. In short I got par and he two putted to half the hole. I went on to win 11, 13 to go 1up and made a great par saving slider on 14.
I played 4iron on 15 and Andy went for the big bomb but pushed it right and the ball was lost, gifting the hole 2-up.
He won the 16th with a good putt ,1-up.
Nerves were jangling a bit on 17 but par was good enough as Andy went long on a birdie opp and three putted, so a 2&1 victory it was(phew!).
Once again thanks to Andy for a great match which was really close throughout. Still a bit miffed for myself and past champion’s that there is no winners board for scratch champ considering other match play events are recognized but heho!
Well done, certainly deserves a board I agree – a cracking achievement. Not much of a consolation but here is a pic of Fletcher scoring a goal.
