Jon Diamond from Tunbridge Wells won the Tunbridge Wells GC Tournament with 10 wins from 15 games. Jon also managed the tournament and ensured the fine weather as well as the cakes for tea.

Following six weeks of what feels like continuous rain, the sun shone (mostly) on the select bunch of players who wended their way to Tunbridge Wells last weekend. Sadly, two of the three lawns were water-logged at the start of play, so it was a bit of a squeeze playing on one lawn for the first day. However, the lawns themselves were in great condition, if a little slower than the players would have liked.

Everybody won at least six games, which shows how evenly matched the players were, but the surprise of the event was Duncan Cox, from Tunbridge Wells, who although having a handicap of 5 managed to win six of his 13 games against players with handicaps 1 and 2. When he learns how to play jump shots he'll be even more successful!
