Chas Hyland Cup Final
The Chas Hyland Cup final was played on Friday 5th May. The Hyland Cup is an annual Men’s knockout Matchplay event played in memory of Chas Hyland. This year’s event commenced in February with 54 entrants and culminated in a play off between Jon R Smith (14) and Malcolm Legge (18). Malcolm was going into the Final in good form, having taken out the Monthly Medal recently. The Hyland Cup is one event at LGC which Jon hasn’t been able to win over the years despite having been in the final many times, and he was hoping to rectify that on Friday. Alas it wasn’t to be.
Jon later told me how the match went, and said, “It was all over on the 13th, I didn’t play badly but Malcolm was on song, he had 8 one putts and 1 no putts.”
