Fuel system technician Jamie Stone delivered a high octane performance to win Leighton Buzzard Golf Club’s two major trophies on Sunday.
Jamie, 27, was crowned Club Champion after completing the two-round event in 145 shots, two clear of defending double club champion Ed Stephenson.
And Jamie became the fifth club member in the last 17 years to complete the double when his nett 137 landed him the Handicap Cup for the second successive year, beating 14-year-old George Stephenson – Ed’s younger brother -by three shots.
James, a four-handicap golfer, works for ATL, a company which specialises in the production of fuel systems for F1 and other high performance cars.  He missed out on being crowned Club Champion last year when he lost to Ed in a three-hole shoot-out after both players finished  with identical scores of 143.
