The damp weather did not stop Worcestershire firm MPF Logistics winning the third annual Birmingham Post Corporate Golf Challenge at Blackwell yesterday.
In dismal conditions, Redditch-based MPF totalled 84 points to win by two shots from J C Rathbone.
Led by captain Gary Shingler, managing director of the Worcestershire packaging and mailing specialists, his team was made up of Gary Wright (Wright Scaffolding), Jeremy McGinn (Nigel Poole & McGinn Estate Agents) and Robert Day (Churchill Office Solutions).
The winning skipper said: "It's a fantastic event on a wonderful course. It's always a privilege to take part, so to have won it makes it even more special."
The winners will keep the cut glass crystal trophy for 12 months and also received a return ticket to New York, courtesy of Continental Airlines.
The event was being sponsored by Allied Irish Bank for the second year and event organiser Andy Skinner of ASAP PR is already taking bookings for next year on 01527 892004.
