Murphy and McKeown Complete the Double


Leonay Golf Club staged the Final of both the Division One and Division Two Foursomes Match-Play Championships last month, with both games going down to the wire for results.

Brendan McKeown (Leonay) and Gary Murphy (Lapstone) were the dominant pairing in Division Two from the start of the Foursomes season, scoring a runaway win in the Stroke-Play Championships, then seeing off all contenders to also claim the Match-Play title.

Match-Play runners-up Michael Cusack and Michael McCormick had finished in 7th spot in the Stroke-Play Championships, but revelled in the Match-Play format, belying their low ranking to reach the Final.

Cusack and McCormick led early in the Final, but a late rally by McKeown and Murphy would see them ultimately grab the Division Two Match-Play title with a 2 and 1 victory.
