Robbie Fulker rolled back the years to take the Club Championship for the fourth time. He triumphed by two strokes over his younger opponents ...younger by more than 40 years.
A superb round of 77 during the worst of the wind on Saturday, followed by a one-under par 71 on Sunday gave Robbie a well-deserved victory. Leading contender after day one, Jim Milligan, who was in the final match with Robbie said he had never seen him play so well in the wind. “Seldom did his shots go above 20 feet,” said Jim. “He controlled the conditions superbly.”
Robbie’s first title was back in 1982, at the tender age of 36, followed by successes in 1989 and 2003. I am sure Robbie won’t mind me saying it, but at 64 it shows that senior golf still has a lot to offer.
Will 2011 be title number five? It just would not surprise me ...and many of the members!!
