Cosby from Leicestershire and Rutland have won the Junior Champion Club Tournament without striking a ball today. The remnants of Hurricane Bertha were to blame after it left the Bracken Course unplayable, forcing officials to abandon the round after less than three hours play.Persistent heavy rain from a dark gray sky following an overnight downpour left the fairways waterlogged and only half the field had begun their second rounds when a halt was called.“The continual rain left the fairways unplayable,” said chief referee Michael Rees. “If the rain had stopped we might have been able to resume. But it would have taken more than an hour to clear the surface water.“The greens were fine but the fairways were the problem. What’s more, the forecast was for more rain and some of the teams had a long way to travel home. So I had to make a decision which was a pity.”But that didn’t worry the Cosby trio (image © Leaderboard Photography), who had afternoon start times, although they were disappointed they were unable to add to their opening 72 Stableford points.“We weren’t expecting play to be cancelled,” said Stuart Kinnaird, who returned 36 points in round one. “We knew the weather was going to be poor but I was looking to put in another good round. Having said that, we are overwhelmed to win a national championship.”Ross Murgatroyd, who also returned a first round 36 points, added: “I am shocked this has turned out this way. We were last off in the afternoon and expecting to be out there again.“Our club has reached three finals this year and we have won the first of the trio. I think this is the first time our club has won anything like this.”The third member of the team, Matt Jones said: “I had the worst round yesterday and was looking to make up for it today. So I need to thank the other lads for helping me out.”Although they finished round one on 71 points along with three other teams, Tiverton took second place because their non-scoring member, Grace Jackson, scored 32 points. This was one more than Huxley Howell of Saltford who were third.For more information visit the championship website. 10 Aug 2014 Cosby crowned champions after rain stops play read more

Jenson Button is set to start Sunday’s showcase Monaco Grand Prix from last place after McLaren’s engine partners Honda detected a power unit problem that will incur a 15-place grid penalty.McLaren have not qualified higher than seventh on the 20 car grid in five races this season.Button, the 2009 world champion and former Monaco winner, is standing in for Fernando Alonso in the Mediterranean principality while the Spaniard competes in the Indianapolis 500 on the same day.The penalty will only confirm in Alonso’s mind that the double world champion, who has been the centre of attention at Indianapolis, was right to miss Monaco for a shot at glory across the Atlantic.McLaren are the only team yet to score a point this season, the former champions beset by a lack of reliability and performance.Monaco had represented a real chance for the team to change that, however, with the tight and twisty street circuit rewarding driver skills and making engine power less of a factor.Button, who had not driven a Formula One car for more than six months until he stepped into the cockpit for Thursday practice, was 12th in Saturday’s final session before qualifying.Belgian team mate Stoffel Vandoorne, who already had a three place penalty carried over from the previous race in Spain, was 10th.Button, 37, had said on Thursday that he was enjoying being back behind the wheel.”I definitely stepped away at the right time and I haven’t missed driving a Formula One car. But today I really enjoyed it, more than I have for a couple of years to be fair,” he said at the time.advertisement”I’m enjoying it very much, probably more than I thought I would actually.” read more
