Playing in front of a gallery of club members, the Bay Club’s Greg Yeomans defeated fellow Bay Club professional John “Pi” Paesani 1 up in the final match of the NEPGA Cape Cod Match Play Championship Thursday, October 30 on their home course. This win gives Greg his third consecutive title and seventh overall since 2005.

Greg took an early 1 up lead on the second hole with a par as John made bogey.  The two then halved the next four holes before Greg made birdie hitting his approach out of the left fairway bunker on number 7 to 3 feet leading to a win and 2 up lead.  The pair halved the next 8, 9 and 10 before Greg hit a poor tee shot into the fescue left leading to at least a bogey while John routinely hit the green in three to claim the hole.  John now having the honors hit a beautiful approach into number 12 about 15 feet behind the hole.  Greg missed his birdie bid and John made his, match all square.  After halves on 13 and 14, Greg hit two great three woods to 10 feet short of the 15th green and managed to get up and down for birdie to take the 1 up lead. John had good looks on 16 and 17 but just missed his putts taking us to the 18th tee with Greg leading 1 up.  Greg hit the fairway and John pulled his tee shot into the left rough but drew a great lie.  John’s approach missed the green just right in the first cut pin high.  Greg hit the green and was first to play and lagged his first putt into “gimmie” range for par.  The stage was set John need to make to extend the match.  Once his chip came up just short Greg had claimed the title.

Both John and Greg played real solid golf as between the two of them they missed only three greens the entire day.  Although Greg won it was a win for the Bay Club as the professional staff once again showcased their talents.

Congratulations to both Greg and John for putting on a great show!
