AYRSHIRE GOLF ASSOCIATION - McInally still on course for third successive Champion Of Champions title

Tommy McInally (Loudoun) remains on course for a third successive win in the Ayrshire Champion Of Champions competition after he defeated David Glass (Prestwick St. Cuthbert) by 4 & 3 in the semi final over Royal Troon on the evening of Friday 5th August.

In the final, McInally will meet Tony Fraser (Annanhill) after Fraser edged out Ian Walker (Brunston Castle) in the other semi final. Despite Walker taking an early three hole lead, Fraser squared the match by the 15th before Walker edged in front again with a fine birdie 3 at 16. A par was good enough for Fraser to square the match with one hole to play, and when Walker bunkered his approach at the last, and was unable to save par, Fraser two putted for a one hole victory.

The final will be played at Royal Troon on Friday 12th August, teeing off at 5.00 p.m., and spectators are welcome to attend what looks likely to be a match of the highest standard, as McInally bids for his hat trick of Championship victories.
