Forty-year-old Mark Smith from Kent won the 2010 Disabled British Open at East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa by a single shot ahead of Alasdair Berry.
Five-handicapper, Smith, from Littlestone Golf Club, returned a two-round gross total of 159 (15- over par) to take the title from Scotland's Berry.
William West, 63, from Breadshall Priory, in Derbyshire - who plays off 12 - was the victor in category 1 for handicaps of 0-13.4; 50-year-old Gareth Williams, from Woodlakes Park, Cwmbran, won category 2 for handicaps 13.5-20.4; and Paul Cunningham, 33, of Thames Ditton & Esher, was victorious in category 3, for golfers with handicaps above 20.4.
Seventy-two disabled athletes competed for the title over two days on the 7,138-yard, Robert E Cupp-designed East course, some flying in from as far afield as South Africa, Pakistan, Spain, Ireland and Germany to line up against UK entries.
The event was delivered through the Accentuate programme, set up as part of region's drive to create a cultural shift in the way disabled people are perceived by celebrating excellence and showcasing talent, in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
