gapc50-l-2-250x250Well what a competitive and low scoring season it has been.  After 15 qualifying rounds the 4 Club Championship finalists are now confirmed and will compete in two 18 hole morning semi-finals and an afternoon final.  The player who finishes 1st in the table will compete against the 4th placed player in the first semi-final with the 2nd and 3rd places facing off in the second semi-final.  , so who are the finalists?

4th Place– Past Club Champion Jon Sharpe has claimed the last qualification spot after a late season run that saw him finish 3 shots better than 5th placed Jaime Hodgkinson and saw defending champion Mark Poland surrender his title.  Sharpe competed a 5 over par 285 total for his best 4 Gross round

3rd Place – Helsby Veteran and past Club Champion Alan Rigby qualifiers for his first Club Championship finals after a 3 year absence.   His recent 3rd place in the 36 hole Ted Jarmin at West Lancs will certainly give him a boost in confidence.

2nd Place –  On a Card Playoff after tying at the top due his 5th best score of 71 is Simon Pay.  One of last Years semi-finalists has enjoyed an incredible season that saw him break the course record which now stands at 67.

1st Place – Tom Rowland claims top spot with -5 175 total.  Defeat in Last Years final has spurred Rowland to achieve a career low handicap of 0.7 after time and again breaking par.  His recent destruction of the field to claim this Years Scratch trophy by 11 shots is a standout statement for a man thirsty to lift champions trophy.

The finals are to be contested on Finals Day – Sunday 18th September – The Semi Finals will get underway at 8:30am followed by the Final at 1:30pm.  This is a big championship and always well watched and supported by members, so why not come down and support the lads, everyone is very welcome.
