What a nail biting finish to this year’s BSP Pennants Competition. After 11 rounds the final between last years winner BSP and runner up NBV was on again. With both teams drawn 3 all it was up to the two number one players to fight out for 1st place.
Malcolm drove into the rough on the 18th and the ball was never found. With Malcolm conceding the hole, the boys were tied going down the 19th. Malcolm bombed his drive 250m down the fairway on the 1st extra hole and Kora sliced his drive and punched out of the rough to 20 metres of the green. Malcolm hit a great 2nd shot from the fairway but a gust of wind took his ball into the bunker and both were then on the green for 3. Kora putted first and missed and was in for 5. Malcolm from 4m sent his first putt past the hole and his next putt lipped out and it was all over. BSP winners again from the last putt on the last hole, you don’t get any better than that!
In 3rd place was Blue Sky, 4th was Cargo Shifters and runner up wooden spoon to Angels & Demons and Wooden Spoon to the new kids on the block, Reefers.
