SKIPTON Golf Club’s match play finals commenced recently as the main season draws to a close.

In the Ladies section Brooksbank Bowl final, extra holes were required to reach a result.

The final pitted Dagmar Hecker-Woodhead against Sarah Coy.

Holes were traded early on and at the halfway stage it was all square.

Hecker-Woodhead then looked to take what would be the decisive move going two up after the 11th and still held that lead playing the 17th.

Coy though was not finished and won both of the final holes to square the match and take it to sudden death, and with her radar now firmly set she also won the first extra hole to claim the title.

The Men’s section finals saw the seniors in action first for the Arthur Taylor Tankard.

Men’s vice captain Ian Sewell was up against David Grant and once again the match needed more than the normal 18 holes.

Grant took the early advantage but Sewell came back strongly in the middle of the round to be 2 up with just three to play.

The experienced Grant can never be written off and a birdie on the 18th saw him back to all square.

The match was finally decided on the 20th hole with Sewell finishing in style by chipping in for a birdie to win the contest.

* The Skipton Golf Club seniors team completed a successful season.
