The finals of the Jubilee Plate were held yesterday at Vale of Llangollen GC and we must go on record by thanking their green staff for the excellent service they provided. At 07:30 the course was closed due to the extremely heavy overnight rain and areas of flooding on several greens. We all thought that the day would have to be cancelled. However the staff were out mopping the greens and one hour later the course was in wonderful condition, ready for the games.

Over Coffee and Bacon Rolls (much needed on a cold and blustery day with the rain still falling) Jubilee Plate organiser John Leigh gathered the competitors together and a draw was made for the semi-final matches.

Denbigh pair of Parry and Mazurek were drawn against Wrexham pair of Philips and Philips and another Denbigh pair of Father and Son Mark and Keiron Shaw against Moss pair of Waddell and Parry.

Both semi's were closely-fought games but eventually Parry and Mazurek were winners by 3&2 and Shaw and Shaw defeated Waddell and Parry by the same margin. Highlight of those matches was young Keiron Shaw, playing off a handicap of 14, never having visited the course before and, by the 16th green of the morning round when completing his victory, stood at just three over par.

After a brief lunch the players headed out for the afternoon games.

The finals being competed by two Denbigh pairs, Shaw and Shaw against previous Plate winners of Parry and Mazurek.

The finals were a closely fought encounters with 'ups and downs' over the front nine. At the turn, Shaw and Shaw led by 2 holes, delivered mainly by Shaw jnr. receiving 8 shots over his opposition. The back nine saw Parry and Mazurek fighting back and recovering one hole but then the handicap difference resurfaced and the odd lip-out putt here and there hindered Parry and Mazurek and eventually the 'Shaw family' were victorious winning by 3&2, clearly helped by young Keiron who will not be a 14 handicapper for much longer if he continues with his amazing standard of play.

The runner-up consolation places between Waddell and Parry and Philips and Philips looked like it was to be a run-away victory by the Moss pair, who at one stage stood 3-up. However, bit by bit the Wrexham pair fought back and eventually came out winners by 1 hole.

All games were played in an excellent and friendly spirit with smiles and laughter across the whole of the day.

The presentation of the Jubilee Plate will take place at our AGM on 1th December at Denbigh GC.

The Union would like to give our most sincere thanks to Vale of Llangollen GC for allowing us to hold the event and to John Leigh who has worked so hard over the year to ensure that the event reached its usual high standard.

We also need to give our most sincere thanks to all players who supported the event over the season. We can't do it without you so please continue to enter.
