CRAIG MELDING (Neath) last week pulled off an­other win on the PGA of South Wales tour.

With the tour­na­ment last month at the Grove called off, owing to the wet state of the golf course, the PGA tour moved on to New­port – home of ex-Coed-y-Mw­stwr pro­fes­sional Paul Thomas.

Melding shot a three un­der par round of 69 to take the hon­ours by one shot over Alex Price of the Glam­or­gan­shire club in Pe­narth and Joshua Mayo (Parc).

Toby Hunt shot a par round of 72 to se­cure fourth po­si­tion while a fur­ther shot back was Richard Brook­man (Creigiau).

The team event was won by Rhys Pugh (Bryn Mead­ows Golf & Coun­try Club) and Gre­gory Baker, who signed for a score of 64, with Brook­man and Michael Harmer one shot back.

The next event is the Machynys Medal in Llanelli on March 8 while the cur­tain comes down on the com­pe­ti­tion 15 days later at St Mel­lons. third spot while a lat­e­charg­ing Steve Bull saw him birdie the penul­ti­mate hole to fin­ish in an iden­ti­cal score.

Three play­ers then en­tered the club­house with 32 points – Christo­pher Ellis, Michael Price and Mark Wy­att – while a fur­ther point in ar­rears were Wil­liam Evans (three birdies) and Bled­dyn Bowen.

The event only pro­duced one other two, and it came from Lee Bridge­man who birdied the sev­enth hole on a 23-point card.

Mean­while, ahead of the Eng­land clash with Wales in the Six Na­tions tour­na­ment, for­mer rugby star Scott Quin­nell last Fri­day en­joyed a four­ball out on the Lock’s Com­mon golf course.
