President’s Cup 2021

President’s Cup Final Standings

The newly introduced President’s Cup to the Glamorgan calendar was eagerly anticipated by all the players who qualified through the Order of Merit. The new Match play format, for the top 16 players in the order of merit, was played off at Mountain Ash and Morlais Castle Golf Club on the final weekend in September.

The opening day at Morlais Castle was a cold and cloudy affair and there were several games that went all the way to the 18th and two games completed on extra holes. In the afternoon the conditions improved for the Quarter Finals.  Craig Melding beating Lewis Flower, Ryan Nedza Beating Ali Mason, Ian Flower, last years winner beating Owain Taylor, Tom Wright beating Lewis John, Rhys Carhart victor over Tom Rees, Llewllyn Matthews beating Rhys Jones, Richard Hooper beating Luke Nedza with Jordan Price Davies beating Tim Harry.  The afternoon session saw Craig Melding win over Ryan Nedza, Ian Flower beating Tom wright, Rhys Carhart victorious over Llewellyn Matthews and Jordan Price Davies beating Richard Hooper. The President’s Cup then moved to Mountain Ash  on the Sunday morning.

The Semi Finals saw a contrast in weather. Mountain Ash Golf Club was in fine form. Craig Melding played Mountain Ash member and last years winner Ian Flower. A tense game which saw Craig come away with the spoils putting him into the final. Jordan Price Davies faced off against local boy Rhys Carhart. Both battled in the sunshine but it was the home player Rhys Carhart that edged out Jordan to face off against Craig Melding in the final.

The final was played in fantastic spirit with both players giving their all. Some lovely long putts from Mt Ash member Rhys Carhart to stay in some incredible played holes. It was with a calm head and some fantastic golf Welsh International Craig Melding edged his way forward to be victorious in the final match. Our congratulations go to Craig and all of the competitors for playing in such great spirit.

Our thanks go to both Mountain Ash and Morlais Castle Golf Club for allowing the fixtures to take place. A special thanks go to our President, Mike Evans for officiating on both days. Your attendance is invaluable and much appreciated by all the players.
