Dar­ren caps fine year with cup win

Halifax Courier - - Sport -

Dar­ren Dav­i­son’s dream year scaled new heights last Satur­day with an im­pres­sive suc­cess in the Og­den Cup. The three-hand­i­cap­per won Hal­i­fax Golf Club’s most pre­siti­gious com­pe­ti­tion for a third time with nett scores of 67 and 69.

The event had been due to take place at Hal­i­fax’s Open Week in June but was post­poned be­cause of bad weather.

There were beau­ti­ful play­ing con­di­tions this time and a field of 70 play­ers teed off from 6.30am with sev­eral past win­ners in the field.

The Cap­tains of Bradley Hall and West End, Dave Dead­man and Gor­don Abernethy, joined Hal­i­fax Cap­tain Si­mon Wil­lis for their third 36 hole com­pe­ti­tion of the year.

Dav­i­son fin­ished one shot ahead of Keighley’s Liam Blacka.

He was adding to his ear­lier 2015 wins in the Joe Robin­son Tro­phy on Cap­tain’s Week­end and vic­tory on Lady Cap­tain’s Day.

He has also helped Hal­i­fax win thesec­ond di­vi­sion of the Hal­i­fax Hud­der­s­field Union’s Scratch League.

Wil­lis said the whole day had been a great suc­cess and Meltham’s Tony Hellawell had par­tic­u­lar rea­son to re­mem­ber it - he had a hole in one on the short sec­ond hole. Og­den Cup re­sults:
