OLLIE Bance won two medals at Royston Golf Club last week which saw him reduce his handicap to one.

The County B team player shot a gross 69 in the Thursday Medal, which gave the two handicapper a nett 67 and a single shot victory over his playing partner Stuart Phillips (66+2=68).

Phillips was on a short break from his hectic full-time schedule that saw him make the cut in the prestigious Links Trophy at St Andrews recently.

He failed to make the matchplay section of the British Amateur, but finished 14th over the weekend in the Berkshire Trophy with rounds of 67, 76, 71 and 71.

Bance continued his fine form by shooting another 69 in the Saturday Medal to edge out Mick Freeman (90-21 = 69) and David Plume (88-19 = 69).

The juniors held their Centenary Qualifier on Saturday and Daniel Smith led the way with a nett 63.

The 13-handicapper had his best ever gross score with a 76 and has seen his handicap tumble to 11, an improvement of three shots this year.

Jonathan Windle had a fine 66 to finish second and James Smith finished third (72-5=67).

Robert Brain and Tom Porter also played well, recording nett 68s.

Alex Bridges and Alf Sheehan romped away with the fourball betterball on Sunday amassing a huge 47 points to give them a four point cushion over Lee Bonney and Chris Little edging out Malcolm Cooper and Kevin Bevan for second spot.

Clive Middlemass and Ben Bennett scored 42 points as did vice-captain Sid Seward and his playing partner Adam Woods.
