MARTIN Brown was the clear win­ner of a Septem­ber Sta­ble­ford played off white boxes at St Mary’s.

Brown was in colour­ful form, shoot­ing 37 points, with birdies on holes four and 16 com­ple­ment­ing five pars.

James Sul­li­van was next best with 32 points while Chris Cot­ter matched par six times in fin­ish­ing a fur­ther point back.

Former Brid­gend Town cricket star Les­lie Cut­ter oc­ca­sion­ally played sen­si­ble golf in hit­ting 30 points – birdies on holes five and 16 formed the high­points and four blobs the lows.

Also on the 30-point mark was Paul Small­don, who got a birdie on hole four.

St Mary’s Se­nior Sec­tion teed off in their fi­nal Qual­i­fy­ing com­pe­ti­tion of the year, played off yel­low tees with Sta­ble­ford scor­ing. The fore­casted fine weather failed to ma­te­ri­alise and gloomy con­di­tions pre­vailed through the morn­ing. Nev­er­the­less, the field of 32 en­joyed the day and the com­pe­ti­tion was fiercely fought. Roger Hat­ton ran out the victor with a net equiv­a­lent par score of 36.

Three play­ers carded net 35s but after a back nine count­back Fred Evans was awarded sec­ond place and Gra­ham Jones third. Gareth Thomas, also on 35, lucked out in gain­ing a place. Cornock and Matt Laverty in the vanguard – but the Porth­cawl chal­lenge had been de­railed.

And they failed to re­turn to win­ning ways last Satur­day, los­ing by a sim­i­lar 2-0 score to reign­ing Port Tal­bot League cham­pi­ons Cw­mavon in ar­guably the Rest Bay game of the sea­son.
