Matty Raybould beats Leigh Gawley in two hole play-off to clinch the Open title at Driffield GC


A blistering morning round from Professional Alex Boyton (Cottingham Parks) gave him a one shot lead over fellow Professional Matty Ombler from Ganstead at the half way mark, with Leigh Gawley of Hornsea two back.


In the afternoon Boyton and Ombler unfortunately fell away as they couldn't match their morning form, while Gawley and Matty Raybould (Bridlington) posted very solid second rounds to tie at the top of the table.


After shooting great scores of 144 each, Matty Raybould and Leigh Gawley both headed to a play-off at Driffield on Thursday 22nd June. In the end it was young Matty who claimed the victory on the second play-off hole.


Well done Matty!
