Longridge Golf Club’s Mark Young produced a stunning victory in the Grange Park Rosebowl held at Grange Park Golf Club near St Helens at the weekend.

This latest title further consolidated his lead in the Cleveland Srixon Northern Order of Merit in a most dramatic fashion.

With a three under par 69 in the morning, Young led his playing partner Paul Howard of Southport and Ainsdale by four strokes. However, Howard, playing some superb golf, soon emerged as his closest challenger with a final round of 65 including two eagles.

Scrambling a par 5 on the fifteenth hole, Young then birdied both the 16th and 17th holes before holing a crucial par putt at the last to secure victory. His seven under par total of 137 (69 + 68) prevailing by one stroke to end a gruelling head-to-head contest.
