TIM Johnson (Cretingham) shot an excellent five under par 65 to win the recent Fynn Valley Pro-Am.

Despite the occasional downpour that affected the later starters, scoring was excellent in the conditions.

In a field that contained 32 professionals, many of them the East Region PGA's best players, Johnson showed the way but only won by one shot from Steven Harris (Harpenden), with Alex Lucas (Fynn Valley) and Halesworth's Simon Harrison a further shot behind.

In fact, even players broke par with a further six all finishing on level par.

In the team event, Johnson missed out by just one shot of completing a double, with his team finishing runners-up to the one in which Hanover's Tony Blackburn was the professional.
