Club president, 90, beats his age by six

Burnham-On-Crouch Golf president John Humphreys has been celebrating after shooting a score six shots below his age

Burnham-On-Crouch Golf president John Humphreys has been celebrating after shooting a score six shots below his age.

The 90-year-old, who has held the position of president at the Essex club since 2008, shot a gross score of 84 playing in his weekly group – ‘Odd-Bods’ – and won his school with 44 points playing off 22.

Playing regularly three times a week, Humphreys is said to often devastate his opponents on both the practice putting green and the course by choosing to putt one-handed.

Playing partner in the group, Del Hawkes, said: “He may not out drive us anymore, but he can certainly beat us on the greens. We’re not really surprised he got 44 points, as he is a hard man to beat with the putter.”
