NEW club champions have been crowned at two of our local golf courses.

Harry Hudson, 16, became the youngest player ever to take the title at the Links.

The club’s junior captain, who plays off a handicap of eight, was not even in the top six after the first day’s play but his second round was enough to take the honours.

Josh Cramp, who will succeed Hudson as junior captain next year, led the way after day one, with Nick Belt, Brad Cowling, Darren Maycock and Mike Mowforth close behind.

But Hudson emerged from the pack to see off the opposition.

At Bridlington Golf Club, Tim Moore won the Hutton Bowl for the first time, with the lowest score over 36 holes.

Moore’s two-over-par 74 led after round one and despite a strong challenge from talented teenager Jonathan Pearce, he held on to win his maiden title.

His score of 71 on the second 18 holes was enough to keep Pearce at bay, despite the youngster carding the best score of the day with a 70.

But an opening 77 had left him with too much catching up to do.

Club newcomer Ryan Rawson had an unfortunate day when after an excellent first round score of 72, he was disqualified.
