Match Play Championship
September - October, 2018

Over the weekend of September 8 & 9, 2018, the club held the first two rounds of the Match Play Championship at Baylands Golf Links. Thirty-six players signed up to compete which required a bit of bracket wizardry on the part of tournament director James Kaku. He constructed nine brackets of four players each and schedule one three-way match in the third round to get to four players in the semi-finals.

The semi-finals were held Saturday, October 13, at Baylands Golf Links. In the first match, Frank Cavaliere eked out a 2 and 1 victory over Scott Blanchard. The second match was not so close with Don Kristofferson besting Ray Coler 7 and 6. Don had his best round in a long time employing a hot putter to hole several crucial putts.

The finals were held Sunday, October 14, also at Baylands. Frank Cavaliere jumped out to an early lead when Don Kristofferson's putter cooled off from his Saturday round. Don made a run at Frank starting the back nine and evened the match on No. 12 but Frank came back to take three of the next four holes and close out the match 3 and 2.
