Tydd St Giles’ first ‘major’ of 2017 took place with a record 144 competitors for the Spring Open in an individual Stableford competition.

There was a stiff breeze to test the golfers. This, along with the course playing longer and tougher than players have been used to, meant that scores were lower than perhaps expected.

The overall winner was Phillip Wilkinson with 38 points ahead of Malcolm Stead (36), Wayne Alder (35), Mark Whittaker (35) and Steven Nichols from Middleton (35).
