Jamie Anderson and Milo Doyle teed off in the final of the 2022 Dermot Wheeler Trophy on Saturday in what was bound to be a tight match given the undoubted quality of these two players and the prize that was on offer. This is our junior singles matchplay competition which is held in memory of our member Dermot Wheeler who sadly passed away twenty years ago this year.
After eighteen holes on Saturday the pair couldn’t be separated. Unfortunately they had run out of light and had to come back yesterday to finish the match, heading to the 19th in a playoff.
Both lads hit the first green, with Milo leaving himself a tricky two putt from around sixty feet while Jamie was in to eight feet. Milo was unlucky to three putt while Jamie, next year’s Junior Captain, held his nerve to make par and lift the trophy.
Well done to Jamie and all the boys who took part in this great competition.
