RICHARD D Jones and James Tuck both shot ag­gre­gate scores of 162 shots at the end of the Royal Porth­cawl Stroke­play Cham­pi­onship, writes Tony Poole.

Wet and windy con­di­tions last Sun­day out on the Lock’s Com­mon golf course led to just five com­peti­tors com­plet­ing two rounds.

James Tuck took the sec­ond-round event with a score of 82-4-78 that con­tained a birdie on the penul­ti­mate hole and eight pars.

Best gross round came from Jones with 80-1-79 cour­tesy of birdies on holes one, 15 and 17 to­gether with six pars.

The only other com­peti­tors to com­plete sec­ond rounds were Bled­dyn Taylor 88-6-82 (birdie on 17 and eight pars), An­thony Jenk­ins 90-6-84 and Steve Bull 98-8-90.

That re­sulted in ag­gre­gate scores of Jones 82+80 = 162, Tuck 80+82 = 162, Taylor 86+88 = 174, Jenk­ins 86+90 = 176 and Bull 103+98 = 201. recorded best gross score via 92-16-76 (three pars).

Scrolling down the score­board re­sulted in He­len Loo fin­ish­ing third with 112-34-78 while Ali Chur­chouse was an­other low gross scorer on the strength of 92-13-79 (five pars).

On the same 79-shot mark came Janet Booth with 108-29-79.
