Results of the Latest Seniors' Championship



Ian Stephenson, a 3 Handicap Member at Ganton Golf Club, shot 75 to win the East Riding Union Seniors Championship at Burstwick Country Golf Club by 2 shots from Barry Peasgood (Hornsea).


Cruising along at 2 over par, Ian came to grief at the short par 4 11th hole (323 yards) where he elected to play his third shot from inside the pond. His attempted recovery shot ended out of bounds resulting in an eight. However, Ian kept his nerve and played the remaining 7 holes in one under par to post a winning score of 75.


Ian had previously won the Championship in 2012 at Scarborough South Cliff.
