Exciting final to juniorwimpel semi-final

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news

The semifinals of the Junior Pennant season 2018 were played this afternoon at the Sandringham Golf Club.

Box Hill took over Keysborough in the first semi-final this afternoon and despite some tight matches, it was Box Hill that came away with a convincing 5-1 victory.

Number 1 player Michael Song led the way for Box Hill with a 2 & 1 victory.

Keysborough's number 6 player Shanita Lal gave her all for her team and made an impressive 3 & 1 win.

It was a fascinating conclusion of the second semi-final between Southern Royal Melbourne.

With three games already in, Royal Melbourne was in the seat at number 3 and number 6 matches extended to the 18th hole.

Southerns Cameron Lajosi, however, kept his guts and closed the number 6 game on the 18th to reduce the deficit to 3-2.

The number 3 match between Lachlan Robinson (Southern) and Grace Mak (Royal Melbourne) was an extremely tight fight that had to be extended to a 19th hole to determine a winner.

In the end it was Robinson who left with the victory after making a very stable par on the par 4e first hole and leveling the game 3 per piece.

With the momentum, Southern Robinson selected for the sudden death offerings while Royal Melbourne made a tactical move to play Raphael Commins that would receive a strike on the first playoff-hole.

A ride right through the center of Commins gave him a considerable advantage after Robinson pushed his ride into the right trees.

Commins struck a steady approach on the front of the green to really put pressure on after Robinson made his second shot of a heavy lie in the greenside bunker.

From here, it would have something special for Robinson in store, and he created a spark with a great bunker shot that was 6 feet away from the pin.

Commins, with a long uphill putt to the back of the green, watched as the ball narrowly dribbled past the hole on its second putt for par.

Robinson put his par-putt neatly in line, knowing that he would probably have to go in and let him escape with a halved hole.

Robinson seemed to be beating a solid putt at a good pace, but looked incredulously as it spooned out of the cup.

Commins then completed the job for Royal Melbourne with a solid putt that showed no sign of nerves to many fearful onlookers.

Congratulations to all players for presenting a great standard for junior golf and for the spirit in which all games were played.

The final will be played in the Southern GC tomorrow and starts at 1:00 PM.
