THE conclusion to all golf championships happened last weekend at the Hamilton Golf Club with all grades decided.
In A grade it was a great win for Simon Goggin, who won with a final stroke score of 296.
Graham Rentsch scored 302 to be the runner-up and Jason Chandler (318) was third and the fourth player who competed was Ben Kelson, who scored 319.
B grade was very close coming into the final round on Sunday.
It was unfortunate that John Hill, who was well in front after three rounds and would have had to have fallen over to lose, was unable to compete in the final round, which was a good thing for his competitors as that gave them a chance for the trophy.
It was only 10 shots that separated the top eight players with John Andrews the leader after three rounds on 262, followed by David Edwards (263), Robbie Cunningham (265) and Bill Richards (266) probably the main chances.
It was this four that became the one that was to fight out the championship.
Andrews came out of the blocks in a hurry as he was even par after six holes with the other three players trying hard to keep with him.
After a few holes he came back to the others and from there on it was a great tussle from all four players.
