When our own John Woodhouse met Ed Wood (Crow Wood GC) in the Final of the LGA Match Play Championship on 16 July 2015, bad light caused the match to come to a premature end at the 21st hole. The match has now been arranged for Thursday 6 August – tee-off at 17.30hrs.. A good turnout of supporters would be appreciated.

Bad light eventually stopped play in the final of the Match Play Championship last night, after 21 holes.
John Woodhouse "started like a train" and was 5 under par after 10 holes and 3 up. Ed Wood turned things around, winning 3 holes in a row to square the match by the 15th. Both players had chances thereafter. At the 3rd extra hole, John had a 10 foot putt to win, but it wasn't to be and both players agreed that the light had become too bad to continue. They will return in August to do it all again - date to be confirmed.

There were mixed fortunes again for EKGC players in last night's semi-final matches:
Cameron Boomer lost to Ed Wood by 4&3.
However, in the other semi-final, John Woodhouse beat Danny Keeney 1 up. In an exciting finish, Danny holed his chip at the 18th for a birdie 4 which would have extended the match, but young John showed nerves of steel to hole his putt from 12 feet to halve the hole and win the match.
The final is played tonight with a 18.19hrs tee-off. All supporters are welcome as John takes on Ed Wood.
