GOLF: Sam Hinze has won her ninth successive Warwick Golf Club A-grade ladies championship.

She won with a score of 317 over four rounds.

"My best round score was 76 in round 2 last weekend,” Hinze said.

"I found it easier on the first weekend, perhaps the rain made the grass a big thicker and the course harder this weekend,” Hinze said.

The win continues an outstanding few years for Hinze who has won the Darling Downs and South West open and closed championships and the champion of champions for the past three years.

She also won the state sand green title last year with a course record 66 at Texas.

Tim Sutton was the happiest man in Warwick on Sunday after he held his nerve to win the A-grade men's title for the first time.

Sutton went into the final round with a score of 216 and a lead of three. He led by four after nine holes yesterday and by seven at the end. He finished with 75 for a four-round score of 291.

Declan Murphy hit 71 off the stick on the last day to move into second.

"This is the first time I have been in the mix for the A-grade championship, this win is by far the high point of my sporting career,” Sutton said.

"I was confident going into the final round today, it is pretty awesome to win.”

The B-grade men's winner was Josh Hynes who trailed Phil Economidis by two shots with four holes to play yesterday. Hynes played brilliant golf to win by two with Economidis runner up.

Liz Cockram trailed by six for the B-grade ladies championship but shone on the last day to win with 380, seven in front of Helen Olsen.

Jan Maher won the women's C grade with 457 from Marge Burley on 473.

Wayne Wiedman had a wide smile after winning C grade following many years of trying.

He won with 371 from runner up Gunter Nicklich on 377.
