JAMES Kidd has been crowned the new Club Champion at Royston Golf Club.
With scratch player Stuart Phillips and defending champion Oli Bance away on county duty, the 36-hole tournament was always going to be a highly-contested affair.
Kidd's one shot victory was set up by a superb one-under-par 69 in the morning, but his faltering afternoon round in the heat, saw him drop five shots on the opening holes.
However, he held his nerve and gathered a final birdie on the 17th hole to finish on six over par for the 36 holes.
