MICK Bradshaw is Towneley Golf Club’s captain for 2012.

Bradshaw is pictured driving into office at the course on Sunday morning (s).

The 66-year-old is originally from Kent, and the retired engineer has been a member for 13 years.

He has won two majors at the club.

Afterwards, the captain’s v secretary’s annual challenge match took place.

The scores were locked at six points each, so a putt off was held in a packed clubhouse to decide the winning team.

Captain Bradshaw held his nerve to beat secretary Pete Witt and claim the victors’ shield.

The biggest win of the competition went to Anthony Fisher and Denis Harker with a 5 and 3 success.

President Steve Wyatt was on hand to present the trophy to the jubilant captain.

The previous day saw the finals days of the very successful winter league competition.

Great grandad Terry Clough rolled back the years and amassed an exceptional 46 points to capture the FK Pott Ttophy.

Derek Hall was runner-up a point adrift, with Scotsman Alex Kernaghan claiming third spot with 43.

Nearest the pin awards went to P.S. Jackson and president Wyatt.

Veteran Derek Hall claimed the winter league’s order of merit from Gary Turner after both players totalled 450 points over the winter period.

Ian Boardman was third, a point behind.
