Ryan Howe was crowned 2017 Richmond Golf Club champion after an impressive victory in the Club Championship on Sunday.

Howe, who plays off a +1 handicap, retained the title he won in 2016 when finishing seven shots clear of Gary Catt in the 36-hole competition.

A first round 66 was followed by a 74 in the afternoon, but the 2-under gross total of 140 was enough to finish seven shots clear of Catt with Ashley Green a further seven shots back in third place.

The net prize finished in a tie with Mike Spink and Ian Crisop both posting 3-under handicap totals of 139 for the two rounds.

Results:

1st – Ryan Howe (140), 2nd – Gary Catt (147), 3rd – Ashley Green (154).
