Webb gets eclec­tic league bid off to a good start

Carmarthen Journal - - Sport -

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
