IAN Barber is the new Oxford City club champion after triumphing in a revamped format.

Previously played over one day, the 36-hole competition was spread over two days, meaning the leaders after 18 holes were the last to tee off in the second round.

It kept the result in doubt until the final putt, when Barber holed out to lift the Southfield Cup.

The 11-handicapper carded rounds of 73 and 69 for a nett total of 142.

He was two shots clear of nearest challenger Sam Kairu, who shot 70 and 74.
