Alex Belt added another title to his impressive season's haul when he won the PGA North Manchester Open at Marriott Worsley Park.

The 28-year-old DeVere/Snaiton Golf Centre player powered to victory in the De Vere PGA North Region Championship at Herons' Reach in May.

Then a few weeks later lost in a play-off against Abbeydale's Gareth Davies in the Yorkshire PGA Masters at Sandburn Hall.

Belt rolled in six birdies in the last 11 holes as he breezed past the overnight leaders with a closing round of 66 to add to his opening 69 for a seven-under-par aggregate.

That left him a shot ahead of Renishaw Park's Michael Ramsden as Stockport assistant Danny Wardrop, a former Challenge Tour player competing in his own Manchester backyard, finished third three strokes off the pace.

Meanwhile, Belt increased his lead in the Michael Slater Order of Merit to 295 points over Mossock Hall's David Shacklady, who was defending his title in Manchester.
