Following a gruelling 18 hole final at 14,200 feet, Rory McHugh and Jonathan Guidry went to a 3 hole playoff and then to sudden death. Jonathan, having come back from a 4 hole deficit in the matchplay event final came incredibly close but ultimately Rory held strong and took the title.
Jonathan said afterwards: “Its a true honour to have made the final and take home the silver medal. Just want to congratulate Rory on a match well played”
Rory was also quick to congratulate Jonathan on a great come back “Jonathan is a true gentleman and it was an honour to have had the opportunity to compete with him in front of an excitable crowd at Camp 3. I just hope we haven’t over exerted ourselves in what was supposed to be our rest day before starting the summit push tomorrow.”
