Jubb stays in control

Sheringham's Mike Jubb continued his fine run of form with a two-shot win in the latest Norfolk PGA pro-am at Weston Park.

Jubb, who won the Norfolk Alliance championship last month, also leads the Norfolk PGA order of merit.

He was the only player in the field in this event to break par, with a two-under 70.

'I got off to a flying start when I hit the hole with my second shot on the first,' he said.

'The ball stopped about 18 inches away and I just had a tap-in for my birdie. That gave me a bit of confidence.'

Jubb added three more birdies on the way out, on the long fifth, where he just missed an eagle putt, the sixth and eighth, to reach the turn at four-under 32.

A couple of shots slipped away on the way home but Jubb still came in comfortably ahead of the field.

'I've got a new Titleist driver and I'm very straight with it, hardly missing a fairway,' he said.

'It always helps to hit your second shots from the fairway, especially on the inland courses.

'If you clatter it in the trees you're always going to be playing catch-up.'
