RYE HARDING won this year’s Hearn Cup at Hennerton Golf Club.
Good scores were made by the 59 players who took part in the 24th annual competition.
Played in a strokeplay format, the cup was the first competition the founding members played for, after the landowners Peter and Jaleh Hearn completed the course.
It is a trophy that has been played for every year since and is considered one of the club’s most prestigious events alongside the club championship.
Club championship runner-up Harding posted a net 55 score from his 12 handicap to win by just the one stroke from long-time clubhouse leader Chris Whyatt. Harding saw his handicap reduced to 11 after the win.
