A golf match between Tydd St Giles green keeper Derek Beba and club member John Gamble raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support – and settled a long-running dispute in the process.
The duo have been locked in hot debate over the past few months, debating which among them is the best golfer.
So, to settle the matter, and to raise some funds for charity, the pair arranged a golf match.
Beba was supported by his caddy Vinney Day while Gamble had Phil Whitehead in his corner for a round of 18 holes.
At the end of the round, Gamble emerged victorious.
