JUNE may have been a washout for most people, but Alex Belt has relished the wet conditions.

He rounded off a tremendous month by winning the Yorkshire PGA championships last week at Willow Valley Golf Club.

After a one-over par round on day one, Belt was one under for the second 18 holes to take the title by one shot.

Belt said: “Willow Valley is regarded as one of the toughest courses in Yorkshire off the championship tees.

“It was a windy two days but I managed to hold my nerve.

“I was one shot behind the overnight leader, former European tour player Neil Cheetham, with two holes to play but I finished with a birdie and a par to win by one.”

The following day, Belt finished third in the Pro-Am event at the course near Brighouse.
