Leighton Buzzard Golf Club Golf Director
Geoff Smith, a member of the club for 23 years, has shown that you should never give up, as he has been trying to win competitions for over twenty years and has now won two in close succession. He has been named as champion of the Plum Duffs, a golfing group who meet weekly at the club to play, socialize and raise money for local worthy causes.
And he then added the Austin Farrell Trophy just a week later when he beat nearly 50 colleagues to top spot in a competition played annually by the senior section at the club.
Geoff carded 40 points to beat Senior Section Captain Robbie John, David Sweetnam, and Tom Davis by three shots for the title, his first "major" in the sport.
"I've finished second and third several times, but never won" said Geoff, adding: "It just shows that you should stay positive and enjoy the day when you get the luck of the bounce."

The Seniors scratch team went down by the odd match in five against Beds & County.
Denis Leitch and Mike Turnock returned winning cards with skipper Robbie John, Harry Adam and David Banwell losing narrowly.
In the October Medal which was played last Sunday the scoring once again was red hot. In Division One both Andy Tizzard and George Sadowski scored 40pts, Mick Myatt and Mitch Mitchell both scored 39pts, Brian Wilson and Peter Brennan both scored 38pts with Manny Barker, Steve Boud, Mark Hammond, Clive Jacques and Greg White all scoring 37pts. In Division Two it was both Andres Valentine and Tony Conneely who scored the big points with 44. Mike Bluett followed with 41pts, Steve Tyas scored 40pts with Paul Ahmet and Simon Rossiter both scoring 38pts. Very well played to you all.
Austin Farrell trophy winner Geoff Smith mentioned that he enjoyed the "luck of the bounce". As we all know golf can be a very frustrating sport but you never know when your best round of golf is going to occur. This is why it is important to keep going even if you have a poor start to your round as it might be a little bit of luck when your ball bounces out of trouble that gets you going and the end result is a better score, rather than giving up and not enjoying your game. The game is there to be enjoyed and we all love the challenge of hitting good shots. Click here to see some very lucky bounces.
