Doull dom­i­nant for Mt Law­ley

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

MT Law­ley has con­tin­ued the bril­liant start to 2018 with a sec­ond straight vic­tory in Men’s Di­vi­sion 1 Pen­nants at Cottes­loe on Sun­day.

The re­cently pro­moted golf side sits a game clear at the top of the ta­ble, with the con­sis­tent line-up prov­ing too good for a gallant Gos­nells out­fit.

Jor­dan Doull’s re­turn to Perth is yet to yield a loss, de­feat­ing Craig Tolchard in an en­thralling battle, while Jayson Wat­son and Rob Hart had rel­a­tively easy wins at no.3 and 4.

Sean Gro­gan put the fin­ish­ing touches on the win af­ter de­feat­ing Paul Crys­tal 3 and 2.

Royal Perth clinched a clas­sic over Man­durah, with two heavy­weights of the com­pe­ti­tion go­ing head-to-head on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

The 4-3 re­sult could have so eas­ily gone the other way, with five matches de­cided by just one hole.

Cooper Geddes took vic­tory at no.1 over great friend Fred Lee 1up, while ex­pe­ri­enced cam­paigner Michael Den­nis struck back with a 1up vic­tory of his own.

Royal Perth’s mid­dle or­der proved the game changer af­ter Joseph Ha, Jamie War­man and Chris Mun all se­cured im­por­tant vic­to­ries to seal the con­test.

Reign­ing pre­miers Lake Kar­rinyup es­caped with a 4-3 win over a young Joon­dalup side, led by jour­ney­man Matt Bowra and Nick Curnow.

Joon­dalup’s Carter Meal­ing caused the up­set of the day, beat­ing a more-fan­cied Joe Owen 2 and 1, while 14-year old Tom Addy nar­rowly went down to Bowra 2 and 1.

De­spite Mt Law­ley sit­ting in front af­ter two rounds, sev­eral sides packed with tal­ent make up the chas­ing pack.

The com­pe­ti­tion now re­turns to Royal Perth Golf Club next week­end.
