WAYNE Hunt emerged as the top player in the Monthly Medal played at Royston Golf Club on Sunday.
The extremely difficult weather conditions made scoring very hard, and in Division One, Hunt was the only player to match his 12 handicap, with a nett 70.
His superb inward nine of only three over par, in the worst of the conditions, has also earned him a spot in the Medal Winners final.
Countback was required to separate the next three players, who all scored nett 71. 12 handicapper Nick Scott, had the best back nine to pip Adrian Shoebridge.

The best scratch score of the day was a 73 by Stuart Phillips.
