Robertson leads the way at Mapledurham

MATHEW ROBERTSON has been crowned Mapledurham champion in a field of 86 opponents last week.

MATHEW ROBERTSON has been crowned Mapledurham champion in a field of 86 opponents last week.

The competition over two days saw him come from behind to take the title with 144 strokes.

After day one he was languishing in three off the pace which was jointly held by Hollis Boisson and Alex Luxon with rounds of 70. One stroke behind was David P Smith who was a further two strokes ahead of Anthony Thomas in fifth position.

The second round was competed for in good conditions by 42 members but the overnight leaders found it hard to maintain their game and hold their positions.

A surging run by both Robertson and Thomas was rewarded with both recording rounds of 71. This gave Robinson 144 to become champion for this year on his own. Thomas returned 147 to take runner-up position from Boisson with the same score.



Boisson and Luxon, who finished on 148, both fell away with relative poor rounds of 77 and 78 respectively to take third and fourth place while Smith had another steady round to finish on 150.

Best net score was achieved by John Cantwell from a 20 handicap.
