Finally (well almost!) the last major of the year was played yesterday, Saturday 17th October. There was a tie for 1st place between Josh Bannister and Mike Leddy both with net 66 with Rob Edwards third on 67. Since the Hibbert is a major it cannot be decided on a card play off so Josh and Mike will have to go head to head to decide who lifts the trophy. Well played to both and good luck in the play off!

Following their tie for first place on the 22nd August Kieran Sharp, Sean Moore and Graham Nevett set off to do battle for the trophy. After 15 holes Kieran couldn’t be caught and so won hisfirst major as a member at NMGC. Congratulations to Kieran and to Sean and Graham.
