Amazing Victory

Ian Robinson had an amazing victory at Lancaster recently by beating Malcolm Savage in the final of the Lunesdale League Singles Knock-out. Ian fought his way through to the final during the season with victories against several top Lunesdale League players from other clubs. The final was an epic contest fought against a top local player from Morecambe in Malcolm Savage. The match eventually went to a play-off with Robbo winning on the 19th hole. Having been up 3 holes out Robbo could not see off his gritty opponent and it seemed as though his opportunity may have gone when he squandered a winning position when Malcolm won the last hole. Both players produced amazing golf on the night but it was Robbo who held his nerve longest to land a stunning victory and bring the Trophy back to Bentham.

Congratulations to Robbo from the Captain. This is a remarkable achievement which may never be repeated and a big well done also from the whole club.

Robbo also has an opportunity to make it a double of titles when he plays with Neil Carter in their Lunesdale League Doubles Final on 22.09 so the very best of luck to both Neil and Robbo.
