Steven Ogilvie won his first ever golf trophy at Royston Golf Club last week.
Playing in the Midweek Golfers’ stableford and Silver Jubilee Trophy, he amassed 38 points in good conditions to take the spoils. The 28 handicapper excelled on the back nine with 22 points it was all achieved without scoring on the 15th hole.
Senior captain John Kelly, Ray Boddy and Ray Haw finished tied second on 35, but Boddy had the better back nine of 21 to take the runner-up spot.
The Saturday stableford drew a large field in good conditions although the south easterly breeze made scoring a little tricky, but the greens were in excellent condition.
Again it was close at the top with countback required to decide the winner with the ever consistent Richard Howorth just losing out to Darren Messenger, both players tied on 37 points.
