The Famous Grouse Trophy kicked off the second event of the Med Golf season last month at Estepona Golf where enthusiastic club members battled for the top prize.

Martin Burns ran out as overall winner with the best score of the day with 41 Stableford points, stepping up from winning the Cat three prize at the last event.

“A regular Med Golf player and senior member, Martin won the Famous Grouse Trophy and two free passes on the San Roque Club Old Course,” a Med Golf spokesman said. “He also significantly hoisted himself up the Jyske Bank Order of Merit. Naturally, Martin also won the best senior prize.”

The course is renowned for the quality of its greens and has a reputation for being a good but fair test of golf.

Played in bright sunshine and a gradually strengthening easterly breeze, the event produced the usual broad array of scores with one or two that stood out from the crowd. When scores are tied, the decision goes in favour of the lowest handicap.

Other prizes were won as follows: Best Pairing: Martin Burns and Stuart Ferguson, 80 points; Best Gross: John Hunter, 76 points; Longest Drive: Josh Hunter.

Handicap category prizes were won as follows: Category 1 (handicaps 0 to 12): Roger Griffiths, 35 points; Category 2 (handicaps 13 to 22) Stuart Ferguson, 39 points;

Category 3 (handicap 23 and above): Ian Wood, 32 points.

Top Ten Jyske Bank Order of Merit, as from 1 November, will qualify for next summer’s Masters: Matthew Gerard; Matt Charlesworth; Martin Burns; Roger Griffiths; Stuart Ferguson; John Hunter; David Pinniger; James Lax; Javi Hunter; Soren Koefoed.
