The seniors’ club championship was played in glorious weather at Clevedon Golf Club and produced a thrilling conclusion.

John Connors was out early in the field and returned a card of gross 80. An opening 42 on the front nine holes was followed by an excellent 38 coming home to be the clubhouse leader.
