JONATHAN Lee Jones was crowned Kings Norton GC’s Club Championship winner as he won the 36-hole strokeplay (best gross) competition in magnificent style on Saturday.

Jones carded 77 and 76 for a 153 total as he stole the show in searing temperatures, one shot ahead of runner-up K Stanton who carded 79 and 75 for a 154.

Congratulations to all the competitors for the strength and stamina shown, which was definitely needed on this occasion.
