ARTHUR Cole fired 8622-64 last week to win the Se­nior Sec­tion’s Au­tumn Plate tour­na­ment at Coed-y-Mwstwr.

King Cole was a merry soul after match­ing par five times dur­ing a round he’ll talk about for many a year to come.

Low gross round of 7813-65 came from run­nerup Jonny McEachen, who pro­duced magic at Rest Bay and home goal­keeper Brett Davies was called on to make an early save.

But the Pem­brokeshire wizards con­tin­ued to press, and they went on to win a de­bat­able penalty mid­way through the half.

Peter Thomas beat goal­keeper Brett Davies from the spot – the ball just carded a two on the 11th hole and birdie on six to gar­nish six pars.

Steady Ed­die D Tay­lor shot 90-23-67 to fin­ish third on count­back from Richard Shel­don 88-2167.

Michael Davies en­tered the Sa­muel Be­van snug with 85-17-68 to fin­ish in front of Clive Dyke 85-1669, mil­i­tary man Ge­orge R Davis 95-25-70 and golf guru Dai (Maesteg) Thomas 91-21-70.

Other twos came from By­ron Cox, Ge­orge R Davis, Rus­sell Gower, John Jones, Brian John, Gwyn Owen and Michael Pad­dick.

Last Satur­day, Chris Hay­ward mounted the vic­tory ros­trum at the end of a Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion.

A sweet birdie on the 16th hole set up a win­ning 42 points with Steve O’Con­nell just one point back after get­ting birdies on holes three, five, nine and 13 to com­ple­ment 10 pars.

Brian Day en­tered the Sa­muel Be­van snug with 37 points (eight pars) to take third-place hon­ours, and the score was matched by Lloyd Dowl­ing (birdies on holes three and nine).

Se­nior star steady Ed­die D Tay­lor shot 35 points, as did Lionel Wil­liams, with four play­ers fin­ish­ing with 34 points – Steve Turner, Steve Wil­liams, Stephen Thomas and Rocky Ray­bould. THIS year’s Revlon Euro­pean Tour – mas­ter­minded by Coed-y-Mwstwr big­wig David James – vis­ited the Span­ish city of Mar­bella for an­other Ry­der Cup bo­nanza.

Former Maesteg rugby star Bar­rie De­laney and Paul Hop­kins headed teams that went at it ham­mer and tongs from the out­set.

A high noon shootout at Cha­parral Golf Club de­vel­oped in the opener, and con­di­tions proved as test­ing as Og­more-by-sea beach boy De­laney win­ning the Sta­ble­ford event.

The Tommy Cooper looka­like “just like that” turned on the magic to con­jure par 36 points.

But the score on the doors favoured Team Hop­kins, 11-7, go­ing into the sec­ond big show­down at Torre Que­brada Golf Club.

Swel­ter­ing weather con­di­tions were matched by equally toasty scores, as Nigel Amos got a siz­zling 32 points to win the day.

But Team De­laney were 14-4 win­ners of the team event, and took a hand­some lead into the last match at Cabopino Golf Club.

A tight course pro­duced equally tight scor­ing with Hop­kins and glam­our boy Adrian Parry joint-win­ners on 31 points.

Once the num­ber­crunch­ing was done, golf­ing god­fa­ther James an­nounced Team De­laney tri­umphant in the Ry­der Cup and Adrian Parry the in­di­vid­ual win­ner.

Once more the tour party sung the praises of golf­ing ge­nius James for an­other glit­ter­ing master­class in or­gan­i­sa­tional skills. pro­gramme of mid­week friendly matches with a 5.5 – 2.5 home vic­tory over Fair­wood Park.

Act­ing Grove Se­nior Cap­tain Keith Grif­fiths thanked the team for con­tin­ued sup­port – and re­quested it to con­tinue in 2018.

With win­ter fast ap­proach­ing, Grove Se­niors yes­ter­day (Tues­day) launched their Win­ter Or­der of Merit se­ries of matches.

And Bar­bara Cash was on the money in win­ning the 12th Grove Ladies Medal tour­na­ment of the year, fir­ing 109-34-75.

Runner-up Jayne Jones signed for 96-17-79 – the round con­tained four pars – with third-placed Vic­to­ria Ford mo­tor­ing on to 109-27-82.
