The 29th annual Flaneburg Masters took place at Flamborough head Golf Club on Saturday, with players returning to compete for the coveted blue jacket.

The format is an individual medal and this year, on a sunny but windy day, low scoring was hard to come by.

In fifth place from Chesterfield GC was Jim Snowden with a 72, with the host club’s captain Travesin fourth with a 71.

Terry Maskill and Mike Smith, both Flamborough players, were third and second after carding rounds of 70.

The best gross of the day came from Chesterfield GC member Bob Rhodes, with a gross 76, winning a £75 voucher to spend in the pro’s shop,

But winning the Flaneburg Masters with the best nett of 69, gross 74, was Flamborough member Stephen Hirst.
