The final round of the men’s Nine Hole Betterball Medal was played at Kirton Holme Golf Club on Sunday.

The leading pairs went out last, and it was very tense as the rest of the players were on hand to watch them playing the last hole.

The leaders Dave Mason and Darren Barnett looked like they were feeling the pressure as Dave put his approach shot into the bunker and then hit it out of bounds from the sand, then taking another two shots to get on the green.

But they held their nerve and did enough to win.

The final results after playing six rounds and dropping the worst score were: 1 Dave Mason and Darren Barnett, 2 Shane Rowett and Darren Gaunt, 3 Steve Maddison and Mark Atkin, 4 Richard Thompson and Dave Beeson.

When playing the final round the best score of the day wins the Les Walton Trophy.

This Trophy is played for in memory Les, a former of the club.

The winners were Peter Sharmen and Martin Moses.
