Actor and Lord Taverner Patrick Mower added a touch of glamour to Kenwick Park Golf Club when he presented the prizes in the Lady Taverners Charity competition.

The day raised more than £3,000 to assist the Taverners in the work they do for disadvantaged children across the country, helping all young people have a sporting chance in life.

The Lady Taverners chairman Yvonne Wood emphasised how much of a positive impact an event like Kenwick’s can have on the progress of the charity.

The Rotherham and Selby team of Colin Sapey, Tom Alford, Jeff Allen and Stuart Kelly took the top award with an impressive total of 89 points.

* While the strength of many competitors seemed to wane over the course of Kenwick’s gruelling 36-hole Club Championship, Kieron Spencer-Chaplin seemed to gain momentum with every swing.

He stormed to victory in the gross competition after a stunning second round of 72.
