A Leighton Buzzard golfer had a double celebration last week when he won his first club competition on his 28th birthday.
Fraser McJannett beat 174 other competitors to win the August Stableford at the Plantation Road club of which he has only been a member for six months.
The former Cedars student who is an estimator with a roofing company, carded 41 points despite four putting on the Par 3 14th, to win the event by a single shot.
Playing off a handicap of 16, Fraser, who previously played at Three Locks, will face a tougher challenge in his next competition, having had his handicap reduced to 14.
“I thought I had blown my chances after the 14th, but it all came good in the end,” said Fraser, who celebrated his birthday and golfing win with friends and family.
Three players headed the chasing pack, with Jack Jones, Christian Lester and Chris Hawkins all having their handicaps reduced by one shot after carding 40 points.
Other leading scores and finishing order were: 39pts – Lewis Monk, John Mckay, Brandon Sanders, Peter Gadsden, Manny Barker, Darran Valentine; 38pts – Keith Powell, Dharm Naveen Dwakar, Justin Moss; 37pts – Mark Sandham, Roger Hughes, Graham Freer, Craig Woolley, Dean Oakley, Steve Leng, Stuart Mills, Lee Ashberry , John Ager; 36pts – David Godfrey, Trevor Mcaleese, John Latimer, Tony Brinded, Matt Byrne, Samuel Bannister, Neil Jarvis, Lee Harnett, Phil Coumbe, Mike J Smith, Jordan Bush.
