Helen Leigh set a blistering pace to win Heydon Grange's Ladies June Trophy with 49 points, earning her a six shot handicap cut!
This inspired her husband Tony when it came to the Men's Club Championship, in which he carded a first round net 72 to be one shot off the pace in the net competition.
He more than held his nerve in the second round over the Europro course with a net 70, only to be denied at the finishing post on countback by Heydon's leading junior David Jolley.
Playing off 12, a mediocre first round of net 79 left Jolley seemingly out of the running - but he came storming back with a gross 75 (net 63) in the second round - the best gross or net round in the entire field over both days
