John Robertson wins Calmore Sports Golf Day 2018

It was wet and it was cold but 21 golfers took to Wellow Golf Club for the eighth running of the annual Peter Clark Memorial Calmore Sports Club Golf Day on Friday.

Six groups set out, all hoping to secure the coveted Claret Jug and Green Jacket but it was John Robertson who stormed to victory with a commanding 42 Stableford points, pipping debutante Mike Austin and club captain Mark Lavelle into joint second place.

Superbly organised by club President Steve Brandes, the players had a great day, despite the miserable weather which had relented until all were well into their rounds but left everyone saturated by the 18th hole, which made the drinks at the 19th hole all the sweeter.

John becomes the eighth different winner of the tournament, first played for in 2011.
