His round included eagles at the ninth, twelfth and thirteen.

He followed this with a 74 on the Sunday giving him a two-round total of 138 and a clear win.

Some distance back on 150 was 16 year-old Jamie Amor, brother of Ben Amor who recently won the England Under-18 Boys Championship.

Don Seaman was third on 152. The day also saw David Lewis, fresh from almost winning the County Seniors Championship, hit a hole in one on the eighth.

For the Ladies, Karen Gosling again ruled supreme with a gross total of 155, twelve shots clear of her nearest rival Natasha Chapman.

The Championship weekend raised £1125 for various charities and was greatly helped by the sponsorship of Callaway and Fullers.
