ROYSTON Golf Club entertained the Outlaws (Cambridge University Golf Club) in their annual fixture, and their young team won by a single point.

The fixture, which is the oldest for both clubs, first took place on January 26, 1893.

The morning foursomes resulted in a 312-12 lead, but the skilful University players managed a 3-1 win in the afternoon.

Marcus Shipley, making his debut, scored 112 points with his partner Mark Bonnett.

More than 100 players took part in the Men's Medal on Sunday, with the weather and course taking control.

Although 10 players managed to break par in the handicap competition, Division Two players, Darren Farmer and Eric Baker, with 68s, shared the best score of the day.

Farmer took the top prize on countback. Peter Dean, Alastair Horwood and Barry Rouse all scored nett 69.

Countback was required to separate the top five players in Division One, with all players finishing one under par.

Lee Bonney came out on top, booking himself a slot in next year's Medal Winners Final.

Colin Clark was second and Stuart Hunt continued his good form to take third from Barry Buckerfield and Dave Shaw.
