After several rounds of two ball match play golf the two best teams emerged to contest the Lithgow Golf Club’s Cock o’ the Walk title with Mitch Luka and Ray Thompson taking on Paul Stewart and Brian Bourke.

Both teams showed good form to make it through to the final but it was Luka and Thompson that made the most of their chances to win the match on the 16th hole.

The winners grabbed an early lead and held on to it to be one up after nine holes and then jumped away to gain crucial holes that gave them the victory.

It was a sweet win for the victors who came close to winning the title a couple of years ago when they went down in the final to Jeff Geddes and Daniel Buckens after extra holes were played.

It was a good team effort this year by the champions with both Thompson and Luka combining to perfection and shoot under their handicaps.

They will be hoping to continue their good form when they play in Sunday’s Lithgow Open.
