Hat-trick of county titles

Martin Foulkes won the Notts Union of Golf Clubs strokeplay event at Sherwood Forest.

His rounds of 73 and 70 were good enough to crown him champion for 2013 and secure a hat-trick of titles for the Worksop Golf Club man.

Club captain Keith Hearnshaw said: “This competition attracts the very best scratch golfers from the county.”

“We are all very proud of Martin’s achievement.”

The Worksop team of Foulkes, Reece Samson and Louis Booth qualified the Worksop team for the English County Championship finals for the second year running.

In 1993 Worksop qualified and won the event, thanks to Mark Foster, Denny Lucas and Lee Westwood.
