A TEENAGE golfer reigned supreme at Ross Golf Club to win his first major adult competition.

Matty Dobbs, 14, carded a gross 96, nett 69 score to claim the Annual Collins Flag medal event, also known as the 'last man standing'.

He has been a member at Ross for two years after being introduced to the game by head professional Tim Hall, who took his 'school of golf' coaching sessions to John Kyrle High School.

It also means a two-shot handicap reduction to 25 for Matty and an impressive 11-shot improvement during the past year,

Matty has also been invited to play for the Ross B team in friendly matches.

Runner-up was Arthur Cartwright with a nett 70 medal score, with John Hartle matching that score.

Meanwhile, a record field of 109 took part in the club's annual Layton Cup, which enabled Alastair Ross to gain his first win with 43 points, closely followed by Chris Kenny and Wref Digings.

Ross are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and the occasion was marked with a Texas Scramble competition.

The day's top prizes went to club chairman Graeme Forrester, vice-captain Liam Greig, Cass Todd and Richard Markley.

The runners-up were Pete Smith, Mike Bradburn, Trevor Flowers and Charles Reeve-Tucker, with third place going to Harry Griffiths, Phil Thompson, Matty Dobbs and Sam Vitzthum.
