England's Wolstenholme wins NSW Amateur

In what turned out to be a gripping match England’s Gary Wolstenholme defeated Tim Stewart 2 & 1 in today’s final of the NSW Amateur Championship at the Terrey Hills Golf and Country Club.
Stewart took an early lead and was never headed in the morning round as the opponents went back and forth with birdies and pars to have only one hole between them except for once in the morning round.
The players graciously took part in a brief lunch with former winners of the NSW Amateur and some of the nostalgia must have rubbed off on Gary Wolstenholme as he vaulted to a birdie, par, par birdie, birdie start in the afternoon to turn the half way deficit of one down to a 3 up lead by the sixth (24th) hole.
From then on it was up to Tim Stewart to play catch up and it was not beyond him as he dragged the match back to one down by the 34th hole. Unfortunately, Stewart bravely attacked the pin and all but made it, only to trickle off the green into an unplayable lie. Wolstenholme rolled his 15 metre putt to within inches and Stewart graciously conceded.
