WIND and rain made conditions very tough when Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club held their roll-up.?But Rob Winnall was not to be denied by the difficult weather to clinch top spot.?Some great golf was once again played and Andy Thomas, back after an injury lay-off, shot 36 points to just miss out on the prizes.?Lee Glasby, who finished third last week, repeated this with a steady 37 points.?Colm Berry – who has had a quiet year by his standards – did enough to finish second with 38 points and also get some winter order of merit points on the board.?The weekend, however, belonged to Winnall, who finally took top spot on countback after missing out on countback the previous week.?Winnall is one of the steadiest golfers at Cleobury and very rarely misses a fairway, making him a very dangerous player at this time of year.

Final standings: 1 Rob Winnall 38 points on countback, 2 Colm Berry 38, 3 Lee Glasby 37.?

*AFTER a week of rain the the Cleobury golfers were greeted by a dry but windy day for the pairs betterball. ?Despite the tough conditions, some great scores were posted with some holes playing harder than ever into wind! ?Matt Fairman and Ashley Cook took the honours with their 45-point score seeing them top the leaderboard. It was a classic partners’ game with Fairman doing the damage on the front nine and Cook on the back nine.

Fairman said: “We both played solidly in the high winds. I have a natural low ball flight so it really suited me. When I was in trouble on a hole Ashley was there to fill the gap and I did the same when he was struggling. I must add that the course was in super condition considering the weather.”?Charlie Edwards and Harry King, who were the last group out, shot a very impressive 42 points which was enough to take third place. ?Mike Wood and Jamie Fearnley also shot 42 but a hugely impressive 23 points around the tough Deer Park gave them second spot.
