He had already won the Stowmarket Club Championship earlier in the summer but his 36 points in challenging conditions on Friday may have even surpassed that performance.

With five birdies the two-handicapper had a brilliant round leaving his nearest competitors, three previous winners, Irene Overman, Dave Bicknell and Ian Hay, four points adrift with 32 points each. James also won the men’s longest drive on the fifth finishing on the fairway level approximately 350 yards from the tee.

The Elmswell Championship has been an annual event for 18 years and this year the event was sponsored by The Elmswell Fox.

The competition is only open to golfers living within the Elmswell boundaries or previous winners that have moved away.

The event was organised by Dave Overman with the best turnout for many years with 31 players and 41 attending the presentation dinner.

In keeping with tradition, 2017 champion, Stuart Harland, presented the trophy to James.
