CHRIS HOLMES landed a stunning treble, when he made light of the difficult conditions to blaze around Crosland Heath to win his third Huddersfield Wednesday Golf Society meeting on the bounce.
The seven-handicapper from Meltham has hit a real purple patch of late, previously clinching wins at Outlane, Elland before scoring 39 points in the wind and rain at Crosland Heath this week.
And that gave him a two-point margin of victory over Woodsome Hall’s Graham Howe.
It was officials all the way in Division II with Captain-elect Stuart Eastwood, from Outlane winning with 35 points from President Steve Braithwaite and current Society captain John Sheard in third.
The Crosland Heath meeting was the last one of the year, and the Society will hold their annual dinner at Bradley Park on Wednesday. The next fixture is scheduled for February 29 next year at Elland.
