|Jack Thomas & Murray McCrone|
with the Ayrshire Boys Matchplay trophy
they will contest on Thursday
In the semi finals on Wednesday evening, Murray McCrone faced his clubmate Craig McKenzie whilst Jack Thomas was up against Jordan Fraser (Ayr Belleisle).
McCrone lead from early on in his tie against McKenzie and played some of his best golf of the season as he increased his lead during the match, eventually running out the winner with a 5 & 3 victory over Mckenzie.
The other semi final tie reached the eighteenth tee all square and a half in par fours at the last took the tie into extra holes.
Jack Thomas had the opportunity to take the tie at the first extra hole but took three from the back of the green to half the hole in bogey fives.
The par three second was also halved in bogeys and the players progressed to the par five third, the 21st hole of the match, in a bid to settle the tie.
Both players were in good position from the tee and easily negotiated the Cardinal bunker in two. Thomas played his approach first from the centre of the fairway and saw his ball come to rest just 12 feet from the hole.
