EVEN on a good day the Royston course can present more than a few problems for golfers, and it did just that on Sunday, with only 10 of the 80 entrants bettering their handicaps.

In Division One of the club's monthly medal, Dan Keogh won with a gross 77, net 66, dropping nine of his 11-stroke allowance in the first 13 holes, but playing the last five holes two under par.

His nearest contender was the wily Mick Merry, who up until the 13th hole had looked the favourite.

However, on the 18th hole Merry could only manage a two over par six and a net of 68 which meant he ­finished second.

Colin Clark and the ever consistent Peter Mitchell came in joint third with net 69.

In Division Two, Terry Bonnett off 23 handicap, and Dave Millership off 19 tied with a score of 67 net.

Bonnett won by virtue of playing the last nine holes slightly better.

Derek Hayden and Peter Dean tied in third place with net 68.

James Kidd won the prize for the best gross score with an excellent 72, beating Jonathon Ostler and Mark Rogers by two strokes.
