New Longyard champ wins in playoff

JOHN Trevaskis is the new Longyard Golf Club  champion following a nailbiting finish that resulted in a three-way play-off after four rounds.

The course was awash with golfers all weekend as three men’s grades and four women’s grades all played for the individual titles.

Sunday afternoon saw Trevaskis tied with Ben Lockwood and last year’s NIAS Athlete of the Year Nathan Mann on 290.

A two hole play-off would decide the championships.

Holes nine and 10 were chosen for the decider, with Mann and Trevaskis parring the ninth, whilst Lockwood fell behind with a bogey.

Mann hit another par on the 10th, although it was Trevaskis who was calm under pressure and birdied to win.

Nigel Constable and Robert Henderson won B and C Grade respectively.

Mary-Anne Macklinshaw played some great golf to win the ladies’ championship, finishing a clear winner, with Noelene Chaffey the women’s B Grade champion, Margaret Daley C Grade champion and Margaret Fenwicke the D Grade champion.
