David Wilson edged out Euan Walker in a three-hole playoff for the Junior Championship.
Tied on 151 for the two rounds, the boys headed for the first of the playoff holes. Despite uncharacteristic wayward drives both hit superb second shots and recorded birdie fours.
The second of the playoff holes saw David launch a mighty 260 yard drive into the wind. Whilst Euan blocked his tee-shot right, he found a good lie and crunched a 7-iron onto the green, 30 feet from the pin. David took a more conservative approach, leaving his approach 18 feet short. Euan’s putt stopped 3 feet short. When his next putt lipped-out and his opponent’s was plumb centre and dropped, it was advantage.
