The Berkhamsted Trophy, held in conjunction with Mercedes Benz, was won by Luke Johnson from Kings Lynn Golf Club for the second year in succession.

Johnson hit a level par, 36-hole total of 142, making him only the second player to win the Trophy in successive years; the last time being in 1978 and 1979 by John Davies of Royal Mid-Surrey.

There was also a hole-in-one from Simon Richardson with his first shot of the first round of the competition, followed by a further 17 pars.

The best placed Berkhamsted golfer was Gordon Stewart on 148.

Berkhamsted Golf Club general manager Steve Derbyshire said: “They were all fantastic scores over a challenging course in difficult blustery conditions.”
