There was nothing dramatic about the pathway to the Sudbrook Moor Gents’ Club Championship result – just experienced, solid, steady play.

New champion Simon Green celebrated the pleasure of winning the title for a second time, having shot five better than the rest of the field.

The entire season for Simon has seen success after success, with consistent results that have reduced his five handicap to a new 4.2, including over the weekend, Simon’s Saturday qualifying score being two under, followed by a three under on championship day.

The winning scorecard looked like excellent yet comfortable course management of a very challenging course, revealing 14 pars, two birdies, a bogey and a double.

Eighteen handicap Dave Sharples also enjoyed the experience of a lifetime. In his fourth year of consolidated practice and play, Dave’s commitment, that he is well known for, has moved him down from that initial 23 handicap to his championship day form of 15.4.

Dave went home on Sunday afternoon the elated and worthy winner of the 36-hole net title, clasping The Millennium Trophy. Dave’s championship round also featured in the gross prize line-up as equal fourth with Sash Mirhadi, who plays off three.

Runner-up was the ever popular frequent past winner Martin Corby, whilst Keith Maclachlan took third prize with a very splendid performance two shots behind.

There were prize-winning birdie twos recorded by Bob Watson, Martin Corby, Kevin Turner, Steve Martin and Lewis Anthony.

Champions Simon and Dave, by special invitation, will now head north of the county in September to the Lincolnshire Club Champions’ Championship at Laceby Manor Golf Club, Grimsby, where they will compete with 51 other clubs for The Hotchkin, Taylor and Butlin Cups.
