Matt Hill (Leighton Buzzard GC) wins the 2014 BOOM after he reaches semi-final of County Match Championships. Matt who is the current County Champion just lost out to Paul Kenna (Dunstable Downs GC) in the semi finals. This is first time Hill has won the BOOM and must be congratulated for his consistency throughout the year.
Gary Munro (The Bedfordshire GC) came second after taking a strong lead in the early part of the season. Gary was looking the odds on favourite to win the title until he decided to turn professional during the summer. This allowed other players to catch him up. We wish him all the best in the professional ranks.
Paul Kenna (Dunstable Downs GC) made a big jump from 7th to come third overall after a winning the County Matchplay Championships. He defeated Matt Hill in the semi-final and then the up and coming young star Jack Hawksby (The Millbrook GC) in the final. Well Done.
