BEN RHODES capped a fantastic final season in the amateur ranks by winning the Bradford Amateur Matchplay crown.

The Woodhall Hills star, who is turning professional, added more silverware in a campaign which has seen him win the Bradford Open and romp to the Karl Curran Golfer of the Year Trophy.

Rhodes was in blistering form to beat South Bradford's Andrew Busfield in the final at West Bradford 5&4 . He had nine threes on his card by the time the players had shaken hands on the 14th, Busfield having played well simply to keep in touch.

Rhodes overcame Bingley St Ives' Terry Brushwood - whom he succeeds as Bradford Union golfer of the year - in a close semi-final, Rhodes winning the 16th and 17th to triumph 2&1.

Busfield beat The Manor's Chris Sugden 4&2 in the other semi-final.

The Inter-Club Foursomes Matchplay saw Clayton pair Chris Foster and Adam Charles crowned winners on a day which saw two more fancied pairs bow out in the semi-finals.

They beat Northcliffe duo Jordan Clements and Rob Malloy 2&1, while Keighley's Dale Heaton and Callum Gray (who replaced the injured Mark Cunningham earlier in the competition) beat Cleckheaton favourites Chris Green and Tom Vertigans by one hole.

Bradford Union captain Foster and partner Charles then won the final 4&3, with Charles holing out for a two on 14 and then for a good par on 15, as both pairs produced great performances.

Meanwhile, Skipton's Graham Wild and Ian Jolly were 2&1 winners over host West Bradford pair Gerry Pearson and Paul Hook in the Handicap Matchplay final.
