Marg Brierley and Mandy Bestwick
Mandy was 1-up coming up the 18th hole, but Marg fought back to win it. So they were all square and needed to play an extra hole. Mandy won the 19th hole with a par to win the match.
Mandy has been a member of the club for seven years and it is the first time she has won the singles knockout. Congratulations to Mandy for winning the championship, and to Marg as runner-up in such a close event.
