A final round three-under-par 67 over his Royal Jersey home course on Saturday afternoon provided him with an unlikely victory total of 282, as La Moye’s Richard Ramskill had held a five stroke advantage at the end of the third round on Saturday morning.

But while Parkman made a great start to the final 18 holes by making birdies at the first two, Ramskill’s superb form of the previous three rounds deserted him and he returned a 74 for a total of 284.

That was two shy of Parkman who gained a stroke at the long ninth and two at the 15th, only dropping one at the difficult seventh.

Overall the standard of play over the three days was excellent, with the course providing a great test for all the 45 entrants.

The 36-hole handicap winner was the host club’s 16-year-old Andrew Rafferty, who just held off his father Stephen, of Les Ormes, and Gyles Robin, also of the Royal Jersey.

The scratch team honours went to the Royal’s Paul Le Chevalier, Matthew Parkman and Christy McLaughlin.

The hosts also claimed the handicap team prize through Robbie Messervy, Gary Denton and Alex Guelpa.
