Golfers gain points for mastering the skills of the game and are marked in a series of practical tests.
Robinson (41), who works for New World in Hastings, showed he had mastered the short putt with a score of 15.
He also demonstrated skills by scoring nine points with the chip and the iron at the Chisholm Park course.
''I like the challenge of mastering the difficult skills,'' Robinson said.
