Card playoff needed to decide a tightly-fought Past Captains' cup
Little Hay Golf Club hosted the men's Past Captains' summer
championship trophy event last Saturday which was bathed in glorious sunshine.
The vaunted competition was played off the blue championship tees to make it an even more enticing challenge.
The winner was Fraser Welling who had an impressive and consistent round, complete with 13 pars in total.
But the real damage he inflicted was with a birdie on the 12th hole, backed up by pars on the last six holes to secure the victory.
Both Welling and eventual runner-up Jamie McIvor reached 37 points so the tiebreaker was decided on a card playoff.
1 Fraser Welling (37 points);
2 Jamie Mclvor (37 points);
3 Stephen Wilkinson (36 points).
The beautiful trophy for the contest was presented to Welling by Little Hay’s current club captain, Trevor Sargent.
Meanwhile, in other Little Hay club news, the previous Monday saw the seniors take to the road to face Chartridge.
Their excellent run of form finally came to an end, as they slipped to a 4-2 defeat.

The Division One winner was Dennis Warren, who amassed an excellent 40 points.
The runner-up was Tim Farrow with 39 points while Frederick Evans was third, also on 39 points.

The Division Two winner was Wael Aljawad, who notched 36 points.
Trevor F Sargent finished as the runner-up with 36 points while Paul Thompson grabbed third place with 33 points.
