Han­son dodges Ital­ian drama

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

WOODSOME Hall’s Chris Han­son has booked him­self an ex­tended stay in Italy.

The 31-year-old fin­ished the sec­ond round at four un­der in the Ital­ian Open in Mi­lan.

Af­ter end­ing the open­ing round three un­der, Han­son en­dured some va­garies in form be­fore fin­ish­ing the sec­ond one un­der – and four un­der for the tour­na­ment.

His sec­ond round started at a can­ter with birdies at the sec­ond and fourth, but a dropped shot at the fifth At Crosland Heath Gen­tle­men’s Din­ner (from left) guest speaker Gary Skyner, club cap­tain Ian Shar­land, club pres­i­dent Mar­tyn Travis and Hal­i­fax-Hud­der­s­field Union past pres­i­dent Bryan Webb brought an end to that charge.

It was af­ter the turn that the drama be­gan to un­fold, even though Han­son in the end was no worse off in the club­house.

A birdie at the 12th was fol­lowed by a dou­ble bo­gey on the next hole – drag­ging him back to­wards the pro­jected cut.

Han­son’s re­sponse was im­me­di­ate and he com­pleted the par-five 14th with an ea­gle.

A dropped shot at 15, a birdie at 17 and a bo­gey on the last com­pleted a roller­coaster round that Han­son will be keen to avoid over the week­end at the Golf Club Mi­lano.

Amer­i­can Pat Perez claimed the lead in the CIMB Clas­sic with a seven un­der par round of 65 de­spite de­lays for bad weather in Kuala Lumpur.

Perez, who had been two shots off the lead fol­low­ing a first round 66, hit eight birdies af­ter start­ing his round on the 10th tee.

His only blem­ish came on the par four 12th. CROW Nest Park Golf Club’s Mike and Gwyn Green­berry danced their way to suc­cess in the Hor­rocks Salver com­pe­ti­tion.

The club’s an­nual mixed com­pe­ti­tion, where play­ers may choose their part­ners to play, was a Green­somes Stable­ford.

A field of 20 cou­ples took to the course and from a field of high scor­ing, on form cou­ple, dancers and past cap­tains the Green­ber­rys (above) won with 44 Stable­ford points.

In sec­ond place were Tracey and Craig Hel­li­well with 40 points, and in third place on count­back, also with 40 Stable­ford points, were Diane Hig­gins and Dar­ren Hill.
