Southgate Storms to Victory proving his old knees haven't failed him just yet!

I'm sure Ian won't mind me hijacking the blog to let you all know that he won the Essex Seniors Championship today and gains the title of Essex Senior Champion 2011.

Despite the miserable weather. his "dodgy knees" held out through the wind and rain for him to take victory!

With rounds of 71 and 74 at Chelmsford golf Club over two days, at one point he was convinced he was going to miss it by one shot. This was happily not the case and in fact he won by one.

The title holds added significance as Ian's son, Matthew, is the current holder of the Essex Amateur Champion title having won it last year. The next tournament will be played on the 2nd and 3rd July at Crondon Park so for the next couple of weeks they will have the titles at the same time. fitting timing with Fathers Day this Sunday.

I'm sure a more detailed story will be forthcoming from Ian; and let's face it, that's why we leave the write ups to the man himself.

I'm sure you will all join me in congratulating Ian. Well done on an this great achievement and all he is currently doing for the club.

Look forward to seeing him back in action on the Barbecue on Friday 8th July!
