A March Golf Club member followed in the footsteps of a relative when winning a competition last Sunday.
James Campbell teamed up with Brenda Softley to triumph in the Papworth Salvers event with a 35-point tally.
And, after being presented with the silver salver, Campbell noticed that his grandfather was a previous winner of the mixed event all the way back in 1978.
Lewis Hearn and Jo Rowlett took second place with 32 points while Garry Brinn and Sandra Russell were third on 27 points.
Lewis Miller was victorious the previous day in the Long Handicap Cup event for men.
