AYRSHIRE FOURBALL CHAMPIONSHIP - Third time lucky for Maybole pair as they triumph in final
The Maybole pair edged in front for the first time with a winning par five at the eighth and a par four at the ninth was sufficient to extend maybole's lead to two holes as the match turned for home.
A birdie three at the 10th hole increased the margin of the maybole lead to three holes and, despite the best efforts of the North Beach team to reduce the defecit, the following four holes were halved in pars or birdies to leave maybole three ahead with four holes remaining.
At the 15th hole, the North Beach team broke the deadlock, taking the hole with a par and reduce the defecit to two holes.
At the 16th, which proved to be the final hole of the match, Scott McCahill produced two superb shots to reach the 491 yard par 5 in two shots and two putts from the back of the green gave him a birdie four which, despite a valiant effort, the North Beach duo were not able to match and thus Scott McCahill and David Wallace of Maybole took the title with a 3&2 victory.
At the conclusion of the final, Ayrshire Golf Association President Alasdair Malcolm (Prestwick St Nicholas) made presentations to all four finalists.
