Sep 19, 2015 Match Play «Pestovo» vs «Skolkovo»
The first match between Pestovo and Skolkovo took place on the 19th and 20th of September 2015.
The first of the two matches took place at Pestovo where all 48 players were greeted with spectacular sunshine and warm temperatures!
Ekaterina Berendeeva and Andrey Romanov won the closest to the pin whilst Gosha reus and Sofia Vdovina won the longest drive competitions.
With only one point separating the two teams the final day was always going to be exciting and exciting it was.
With four matches still to play Pestovo were leading by a total of 8 points but Skolkovo won the next 3 matches 3-0 which meant with one match left on the course Pestovo were now losing by a point.
Step up Mia Sattar and Arman Movsesyan who won the last hole and the match with Sattar holing a 2 meter putt to seal the victory.
There were many great performances from the Pestovo players but two in particular we should mention. Kim Khachaturian birdieing the last hole to win 1.5 points was a great way for him to finish and Sofia Tyler who played with Golf Director Stephen Dundas. Sofia had 5 pars and 1 birdie playing some amazing golf that helped her and Stephen win 3 points.
