THE 2017 PRIMARY CLUB MATCHPLAY TOURNAMENT

The Matchplay Tournament is sponsored by The Primary Club, they have been sponsoring this event for many years.  The tournament is played for the Lew Vizzard Knockout Trophy, this trophy was given to EWBG back in 1986 and sadly Lew passed away a few years ago.  We held the event at Gaudet Luce Golf Club who have been great supporters to EWBG for nearly 20 years.

We started the event with the draw on Sunday night everyone gathered in the Clubhouse waiting with anticipation to see who they were drawn against.

Monday saw the first round and the finals the weather was rainy most of the time.  Tuesday morning was the quarter finals and the Stableford Plate for those knocked out in the first round, with the semi final in the afternoon.  The weather was worse with rain and howling wind.  Wednesday morning for the Final between Steve Beevers, guided by Ian Tyrer, and Jason Heathfield, guided by Magda Buckley.  What a difference in the weather, blue skies and sunshine, not a waterproof in sight.  It was a very tense final with both players playing well and finished on the 17th with Steve winning 2 and 1.
