Sheringham's Mike Jubb ended last season with a win - and has begun 2010 with another success, thanks to a one-under par 71 in the latest Norfolk PGA pro-am at Weston Park.

He also led in the winning team, which returned a 14-under par score and were three shots clear of their closest challengers.

'I was very pleased. I haven't played a lot this year and it's been a lean winter but I ended last year with a win and now I've started with another one,' said Jubb.

'Hopefully I'll have a good summer.'

He added: 'I had a really good team who all played excellent golf. All four of us hit fairways and greens and gave ourselves lots of chances.'

Jubb reached the turn at one-under, with two birdies and a bogey. He briefly dropped back to level par after dropping a shot on the 14th, but got it back straight away with a birdie on the next.

'I hit it very close all day and missed a few six-footers so it could have been four or five better - but I was delighted,' he said.

Joint runner-up was the in-form Gary Potter of Links Country Park, West Runton, who finished a shot behind and moved to the top of the order of merit.

Potter is already a senior and Jubb, who is approaching those ranks, was pleased to note that the older players are a force to be reckoned with.

However, he was equally delighted to see Dunston Hall's Steven Chick among the prizewinners.

He's one of the county's newest professionals and Jubb used to coach him when he played for the Norfolk U18s as an amateur.

Chick and another young pro, Matthew Gardner of Barnham Broom, shared the best trainee award.

t The next event will be the first of this year's Insight-sponsored events at the Royal Norwich club on Monday, May 10 and it is also the closing date for the professionals' match-play knockout.

On Thursday, May 13 the county's professionals will be playing their Suffolk counterparts for the Millennium trophy at Great Yarmouth & Caister and entries have to be made by Friday, April 30 to the Norfolk PGA secretary.
