TEENAGE golfer Cam Haines took the fight to those more experienced at Ross Golf Club held their Scratch Open involving 36 holes gross medal play.

Some 68 of the top low handicap amateur men golfers from far and wide descend upon the Wye Valley to compete in competition.

Tom Workman (Minchinhampton GC) has a +1 handicap took the title for a third time to add to his successive wins in 2013 and 2014.

At lunch after 18 holes Workman topped the leader-board with an immaculate three under gross 69 score.

He was matched by 18 year-old one handicapper Haines, making an exciting final 18 holes in prospect.

With two birdies in his last three holes Workman's 142 gross medal score was just one shot ahead of the runner-up who was Ceri Fearnley (Filton Golf Club) with a 143 total.

While Haines finished with a 145 total. A few days later the teenager was runner-up in the Club's Men's Singles Open in which 117 competitors took part.

Senior Ross GC members were back in action with 108 entrants aiming to win the Keene Cup, their first major honours board recognition event of the season.

The event was won with 40 points by relative newcomer Andrew Petersen.

Paul Dando with 38 points was runner-up followed by Phil Wilson and Paul Meddings also with 38 points.

Veteran Robin Darling struck a 12th green hole-in-one, which was the sixth in a golfing career covering seven decades.

Ross GC's Seniors Captain Andy Baldwin chose Ombersley Golf Club for his annual away day.

Relative newcomer David Bridges was the day's champion also claiming the prize for the longest drive.

Peter James was runner-up and with Baldwin accompanying the top two prize-winners, the best team prize was a formality as was the nearest the pin prize with Chris Good scoring a 'hole in one' to complete the day's celebrations.
