STEVE Turner won the Septem­ber Medal tour­na­ment at Coed-y-Mwstwr with 86-19-67.

A two on the penul­ti­mate green along with five pars did the trick for Turner while Di­vi­sion One win­ner Gary Dowl­ing hit 71-4-67 for low gross score of the day.

He too got a two on the 17th hole and got a fur­ther birdie on hole six to go with 13 pars.

Ex-Pyle & Ken­fig star Mark Ray­bould was third, the hot dog man fired a mag­nif­i­cent seven pars in 85-15-70 while Stephen J Reed was fourth with an iden­ti­cal score and sev­enth-placed Huw Martin­son fired 78-6-72.

Twos also came from Steve Turner, Gary Dowl­ing, Steve O’Con­nell along with his un­cle Rory O’Con­nell.

How­ever, per­sis­tent early rain led to last week’s Se­nior Stable­ford be­ing can­celled.
