ILFORD Golf Club hot-shot Matthew Pinner enjoyed a highly successful weekend with more superlative performances.
The Dave Curran Plate was contested on Saturday, the first junior honours competition of the year, with Pinner retaining the trophy he has won for the previous two years. Runner-up in the first division was Jack Bulley, with Jack Davies taking the second division title and Max Lawrence taking second.
In the winter four-ball event Pinner teamed up with Michael for the final round of the competition and the duo were top of the leaderboard before Sunday's round with the best three rounds out of six still to play.
The winning team for the final round was club captain Ray Stevens and Eric Weeks, who finished with 41points on a blustery day.
Mark Bishop and John Pilka finished second with 40 points, while Matt Bayford and Terry Wheeler finished third with 39 points.
The father and son team of Michael and Matthew Pinner had to wait for the scores to be confirmed to find out they had won the overall competition by one point, from second placed Stevens and Weeks.

Ilford's ladies contested the March Stableford competition, with last year's ladies captain Jenny Weeks winning with 34 points after edging out Julie Dennis.
WOODFORD Golf Club committee member Mark Bonham registered a win in the club's March monthly medal.
The event was played as a stableford competition and his 39 points, off a handicap of 14, saw him finish one point ahead of seven-handicapper Paul Swindells and three ahead of nine-handicap junior Ben Hayden.
Both Bonham and Swindells received a cut in handicap as a consequence. In Division Two, Eion Botha played to his 17 handicap and finished with 36 points, one ahead of Ted Purdue and four ahead of Stewart Baines.
