Matt Wabe's nett 72 was good enough to win Division One of the March Medal at Thetford Golf Club. The five-handicapper may have thought he was out of contention when he had a triple-bogey seven at the second, but his round caught fire with three birdies in a row from the 13th as he played the last nine holes in one-under-par.
That was just enough to beat new member Chris Robson by one stroke. Chris, who plays off plus one, had three birdies of his own offset by three bogeys for a gross score of 72. He beat five-handicap Mark Henfield on countback.
The difficult conditions on Sunday were reflected in the Division Two scores where Derek Smith won with a nett 74, two over par. Derek plays off 18 and beat Nolan Guthrie (18) on countback.
