PAUL Thomson claimed Royston Golf Club's long standing Pulsatilla Cup following an impressive weekend of golf.
The popular 36-hole handicap competition has been running for the past 75 years, and as usual, was dominated by the lower handicapers.
And it was Thomson 73 (nett 67) and Chris Watson 70 (nett 67) who led the way on Saturday, closely followed by Barry Buckerfield 76 (nett 68).
On Sunday the pressure started to tell on some of the ealry leaders, as other contenders emerged from the chasing pack, with both Buckerfield and Watson slipping back in pursuit.
And in their place David Neale came to the fore and improved on his 75 with a 67 for a 142 lead, with Peter Prentive close behind with 143, before Darren Dawson improved on his 73 with a 67 for 140, at one point looking the likely winner.
Thomson started his round with a 3-over-par 8 on the first hole.
