Gareth Mills is the first winner of Thetford Golf Club's Order of Merit.
Going into the final event, Sunday's Club Championship, he trailed long-time leader Dean Scott by 23 points.
The final event is worth double points so Gareth's closing round of 73 moved him up to fourth place and gave him 34pts. Dean, meanwhile, also had a good second round but had too much ground to make up and only earned 22pts. But the competition is decided by the best six scores out of eight events and as Dean has played in all of them he had to drop one of his scores - and he was only able to add seven points to his overall tally. That gave him 114 - and second place, four behind Gareth.
Josh Chamberlain was one point further behind with 113, followed by Jason Huggins (110), Matt Harben (107), Matt West (106) and Matt Wabe (104).
In the Handicap Order of Merit Jason Huggins won with 88pts followed by Gareth Mills (83), Brian Youngs (74), Dean Scott and Matt Wabe (65) and Ray Hamilton (60).
