Kirtlington's Nigel Barrett shot an incredible nett round of 14-under-par during their monthy medal.

Barrett, who was a 28-handicapper prior to the event, went round in 84 strokes for a nett score of 56, which unsurprisingly was the winning total.

“I have been a member now at Kirtlington for several years and after many unspeakable rounds, it finally all came together, the round I have been searching for,” said Barrett.

“Thanks to the support of the members in my group and a couple of new utility hybrids recently purchased, I was able to shoot a 56.

“I have had other good rounds, but have always had a few holes which let me down.

“With an eight on the first I thought ‘here we go again’, but the round just got better and better.

“Now I have been cut to a 23.2 handicapper, I want to keep going in the right direction.”

Kirtlington spokesman Tony Perella added: “I have played with him in a club competition and can confirm that he was a genuine 28-handicap player.

“I think that this ranks equal to a hole in one or better.”
