WEST Herts golfers took the Herts Golf Union Champion Club title on a stormy and wet day at South Herts.

The team of county captain James York, Greg Schmidt and Tom Speyer returned a team total of 223 to snatch the title by two shots from the second-placed Hartsbourne Country Club trio of Michael Charles, Jeremy Bohn and Mark Gershinson.

Letchworth's team of David Tandy, Joe Smith and Ben Harman were a further two shots off the pace on 227.

A storm delay of nearly two hours meant that the tournament was reduced to 18 holes, but some fine golf was still played in very difficult conditions.

The best round of the competition went to Batchworth Park golfer Matthew Wallace, who shot a gross 70 against a CSS, which went up to 74 on the day.

The winning West Herts team will now go forward to represent Hertfordshire in the National Champion Club finals to be played at The Wiltshire Golf Club on August 30-31.
