|Ewan Milligan & Euan Ferguson|
Ferguson extended his lead to two holes with a par three at the fifth and took control of the match bty winning three successive holes from the seventh to turn for home with a five hole advantage.
Pars at the opening two holes in the inward half saw Milligan reduce the defecit to three and a further par four at the long and difficult thirteenth hole reduced Ferguson's lead further, to two holes.
The next three holes were halved in par figures which left Ferguson dormie two as the players came to the penultimate hole, the famous Alps hole.
Milligan missed the green to the left with his approach whilst ferguson was just through the back of the green on the fringe, with an extremely difficult downhill shot left to the pin.
Playing first, Milligan got his chip to within four feet of the hole, whilst ferguson played his approach putt well, his ball coming to rest just beyond Milligan's. Putting first, Ferguson bravely holed his five foot putt for a fine par four to take the match and progress to the final with a 2 & 1 victory.
|John Jack & Robbie Muir|
Jack showed his fighting spirit over the next two holes, winning both the sixth and seventh with par fours to reduce the defecit to two holes once more, but Muir hit back and took the eight and ninth to restore his four hole advantage at the turn.
Again Jack reduced the deficit to three by winning the eleventh with a three but Muir hit back immediately, winning the twelfth with a birdie four to go four up once again.
Muir maintained his lead into the closing loop and a fine chip to the fifteenth green to secure a conceded par four was enough for Muir to close out the match with a 5 & 3 win.
The final, on Thursday 10th August, will tee off at Prestwick GC at 4.30 p.m.
