THERE has been some outstanding winning scores on the Settle golf course over the past few weeks, however Stephen Robinson's effort last weekend was certainly up there with them all.

Playing off his handicap of seven Robinson shot seven pars on the front nine, going out with a gross 39.

His back nine was even better with birdies on the 10th, 11th and 18th.

This enabled him to return a net 68, which meant that he had played to a handicap of five.

This year's club captain, Mike Elstub, would have been slightly disappointed that his excellent round of 72 could only give him the runners-up spot.
