THE awesome foursome of Glenn ‘Tram’ Tramasuer, Jez Duffield, Paul Liggins and Neil Brydon triumphed in the men’s yellowball competition at Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club.
Paul Hannah, Pat Fleming, Dave Moore and Gary Hingley posted a superb 138 points which would normally have comfortably won the event.
However, the team of ‘Tram’, Duffield, Liggins and Brydon had other ideas.
They tore apart the course and used the yellowball format very well to score double points on important holes. The foursome shot 141 points to give them a deserved victory.
The yellowball competition is a four-team event whoh puts extra pressure on each player as the yellow ball counts for double points and cannot be replaced if it gets lost.
Despite a deluge of rain three days before event, greenkeepers worked wonders and got the course fully open. No temporary greens were used and the course played to its full length.
Previously, the father and son combination of Scott and Jack Severn achieved first and second places in the club stableford.
Son Jack, playing off a 12 handicap, achieved had 41 points, while his dad, Scott, carded 39 points to finish second on a countback.
Jack and Scott said the secret to Jack's excellent score was the greater distance he’s achieving off the tee.
“'Jack didn't miss a fairwa, and in winter golf that is so key,” said club spokesman Dave Pain.
“This was his lowest score around Cleobury to date and we are delighted with his progress.”
Glyn Morton, Dave McGuire, Bob Rudge, Andy Hastings carded 96 points to win the Christmas Open which attracted 128 players.
Long standing Cleobury visitor Rudge brought his team from Hagley and they produced a stunning display to win by seven.
In-form Paul Bowers and partner Chris Newman shot 46 points to clinch top spot in a men’s betterball competition.
The duo shot an incredible 46 points, including 26 on the front nine, to take the title.
Andy Thomas and Roger Evans posted 44 points and had to settle for second spot.
