Student duo win golf tournament
Keele University students Sam Breed and Tom Herus won the first Super 6 tournament staged at Astbury Golf Club.
They beat the well known pairing of Linda Burrows and Sue Bentley in a hard-fought final by 17 to 16 Stableford points over the six-hole match. Clearly with 12pts being par for the short course, this was a great performance by both pairs at the end of a demanding 36-hole competition played on the hottest day of the year.
The innovative competition, believed to be the first staged for amateurs in the region, featured 16 pairs drawn from local clubs and Astbury members. There were all male, all ladies and mixed pairs playing in the Champions League based format.
