The final 18-hole competition of the season was held over the bank holiday weekend and for Ivor Gleason it was well worth waiting for. The coaching he has been receiving from club pro. TP paid off handsomely with a runaway score of 43, winning by 6 from Stephen Woods and Mike Ryan (who had a fine score off 10). (Ivor has since been spotted handing a brown envelope to handicap secretary David Mahon, who has just returned from a very expensive trip to Australia).
