Beesley retains his title

MERE’S Jon Beesley retained his Cheshire Golf Association Matchplay Championship crown at Warrington in a play-off.

Last year’s Bramall winner needed 20 holes to beat his opening round opponent Chris Chilton (Birchwood) but then comfortably beat George Drakonakis (Ringway), Dan Benson (Prestbury) and Josh Crumplin (Macclesfield) to set up a final against Stockport teenager Curtis Brokenbrow, who also plays at Reddish Vale.

Brokenbrow took the game to the wire of an extra hole with some calm and determined golf before Beesley won the first extra hole to retain his title in a fitting climax to an excellent tournament.
