Over the Moon

Rob Moon completed a hat-trick of club championships when he won the Seaton Carew title for the first time.

The 33-year-old from Billingham won the club title there, went on to pick up four titles at Wynyard and has now been crowned Seaton’s top man when his two round 146-total from 69 and 77 proved enough to beat Greg Johnson and Cameron Wallace by four shots.

Rob said: “I’ve been a member about 18 months and currently play off plus-one. I won one club championship at Billingham where I was a member as a kid. I then moved to Wynyard for six years where I won four club championships, three of them in a row.”

He has some work to do to match his quartet of Wynyard titles at Seaton, but his talent is well known having represented Teesside Union and Durham County regularly for years. “It was a good day playing with Rob Clark and Robbie Mcgahan with perfect weather, it’s always made better when you win. I played really steady on the morning but the highlight was making birdies on six, seven and eight to go four under-par.”

He was able to deliver the title despite some bad news during the build up to the event.

“I unfortunately lost my 44-year-old brother-in-law three days before after a very short battle with cancer. My mind was elsewhere all weekend and when I hit a bad shot I accepted the fact that I hit a bad shot as it’s only a game.”
