Webb gets eclectic league bid off to a good start
AFTER a frost-delayed start at Derllys Court Golf Club, the first round of the seniors’ Winter Eclectic league was played in bright sunny weather.
Although good scores were anticipated it proved to be a tight contest, with 39 points from Peter Webb good enough to take first place from Les Burgoyne in second, with John Hartley claiming first place in division one, and third overall, both players recording 37 points.
Behind them, four players were tied on 36, with Chris Cousins enjoying his return to seniors’ golf after a few years away and seeing his 21 points take the prize for the best back nine in division two.
On the same score, Nick Argue took the runner-up spot in division one on countback from Jeff Thomas and Roy Gallop, who took the next two places on the same score.
Chris Evans’s 19 points was the best front nine score in division two, and Ian Watson’s 18 won the best back nine score in the higher division.
Although playing only nine holes in round one, Graham Owens recorded the top score in the same division on the front nine.
His 20 points and seven pars sets him up nicely for a good eclectic score in the remaining rounds.
Eleven players recorded twos on either the second or fifth holes.
Hartley takes an early lead in the eclectic table from Jeff Thomas and Colin Jones, with Burgoyne, Webb and Argue occupying the next three spots.
Round two of the takes place next week. competition
