Scheduled for 36-holes of matchplay last Wednesday, Watson confi rmed her favouritism status racing to an 8/6 victory over opponent, Helen Stratford. It was the second time in three years that Watson and Stratford had met in the Division 1 fi nal. At the 18-hole lunch break, Watson enjoyed a 6-up lead but to Stratford’s credit she won two holes back to be 4-down after the 21st before Watson upped the ante and cruised to victory. The Division 2 grand fi nal was also played last week with Julie Gamble meeting matchplay debutant, Janine Dunn in a scheduled 27-hole contest. Gamble was the defending champion and pre-fi nal favourite, but when she was 3-down after 9-holes, an upset seemed on the cards. Gamble however fought back strongly and led 3-up at the end of the 18th. DIVISION 2 CHAMPION: Julie Gamble is excited to knock a putt in, en route to winning the Division 2 title for the second year in a row. Dunn however won two of the next fi ve holes to keep the match alive with four to play. Gamble then ensured the title was hers with victories on both the 24th and 25th holes to close Dunn out with a 3/2 victory. Meanwhile a 9-hole stableford was held for non-championship fi nalists with Nancy Whitehead scoring 17 points to win from Joan McQuade on 16 and Carol Melhuish and Fay Price both on 15.
