Ipswich golfers tee up pennants victory in decider

IPSWICH proved too strong in the open final of the Moreton District Pennants at Laidley Golf Club last Sunday.

On the first hole, the nerves set in for many players as there was a few errant shots off the tee.

However, the Ipswich team handled the challenge best to beat the young Sandy Gallop team 4-1.

Sandy Gallop's Ben Daniels played a solid game against Ipswich's number one player Adam Gemmell, but was not enough for him to get over the line.

Gemmell played some amazing shots to edge Daniels out.

Troy McGuiness was paired up against Ipswich's rising young star Josh Miles and they provided the crowd with some entertaining golf.

Miles and McGuiness were both all square coming up the 18th hole.

Miles produced the shot of the day, resulting in an eagle on the hole, which was too good for McGuiness who tapped in for par.

Sandy Gallop's youngest Open player, 14-year-old Matt Frohmuller played in a hard fought match against experienced Ipswich Golf Club pennant captain Ken Robertson.

The game was close for the 18 holes, but Frohmuller took advantage of an error from Robertson on the 17th to bring the match back to all square.

Frohmuller chipped close for a tap in birdie and Robertson missed his birdie putt, which resulted in Sandy Gallop's only win for the day.

Bart Cafe played a dominant game against Sandy Gallop's Brandon Burrows, who struggled against an in form Cafe.

John Lemasurier, who was one of Ipswich's most consistent players this season, sealed his season with a win over Sandy Gallop's Dean Currie.

The result was a lot closer in the Challenge pennant with Ipswich beating Sandy Gallop 3-2.

Ipswich were the in-form team in the Challenge pennants, being undefeated all season and they didn't disappoint in the final.

Led by Challenge captain Terry Haslam, the Ipswich team played with confidence and came away with the Challenge pennant for 2012.

Sandy Gallop's two wins came from Martin Acutt and Daniel Hooper who had stellar pennant seasons.

Hooper lost only two matches out of nine.

Pennants official Craig Frohmuller said the spirit in which the games were played was something to be admired.

"It is hoped this will send a message to all clubs that golf is alive and well in the Moreton District," Frohmuller said.

"Sandy Gallop and Ipswich have a strong history and it is always an enjoyable game when the two teams meet."
