Ku­ber is a gen­uine driv­ing force

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

MARK Ku­ber beat Walker Cup star Luke God­dard to win the John­son Bet­ter Ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Plagued by a back in­jury for the past few months, Ku­ber has been forced to miss a large chunk of the sea­son but he saved his best form to beat am­a­teur cham­pion God­dard, who re­cently turned pro­fes­sional.

The victory capped a num­ber of suc­cesses for the young­ster who won the North­wood Un­der 21 Open as well as hav­ing a hole-in-one at the Hen­don Golf Club Pro-Am, an achieve­ment re­warded with a new set of clubs.

K u b e r was also a medal­list at Hen­don’s S p r i n g Meet and fol­lowed this up by winning the men’s club Cham­pi­onships by three shots.

T h e H e n - don event was Ku­ber’s last be­fore his fit­ness de­te­ri­o­rated. He also reached the fi­nal of the men’s scratch knock­out and won the Cap­tain’s prize, the men’s hand­i­cap knock­out for all male mem­bers at Hen­don.

In­jury forced him to with­draw from play­ing for the Hen­don and Mid­dle­sex teams. Hav­ing re­cu­per­ated, he re­turned to action in Birm­ing­ham last week­end, help­ing Hen­don’s scratch team home in the Mid­dle­sex County Rowse Tro­phy.

Ku­ber said: “It seems my body is now back on the mend. I’m get­ting back in the gym and beginning to prac­tice again in the hope of a bit more luck next sea­son.”
