Jones takes com­mand thanks to fine first round

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

TONY Jones led the way in di­vi­sion one as Car­marthen Golf Club Se­niors played the first round of the WL Davies Cup.

Jones recorded 37 points, fol­lowed by Gra­ham Wil­liams on 36 and Tim Har­ries on 34.

Com­ing out on top in di­vi­sion two was Alan Ed­wards with 38 points. Chris Smith was sec­ond with 34 and in third was Rob Thomas with 32.

The di­vi­sion 3 win­ner was Martin Phillips with 40 points fol­lowed by Ryan Bowen on 36 and Ge­orge Laid­law on 34, with the next two rounds to be played over the next few months.

Sec­tion trea­surer Ray Sinden again had a big smile on his face as only two twos were recorded, by Tony Jones and Martin Phillips.

There were dif­fer­ing emo­tions for the two teams in the South Wales Clas­sic, with both hav­ing re­ceived dif­fi­cult away draws.

In the cup, the A team trav­elled to Llan­ishen in Cardiff, and although they fought valiantly, lo­cal knowl­edge proved key as Car­marthen suf­fered a 2-1 de­feat.

Tim Har­ries and Clive Thomas lost 2&1, cap­tain Huw Rees and club cap­tain Fred Steel earned an ex­cel­lent win on the last, but Rho­dri Davies and Ian Grif­fiths went down 4&3.

How­ever, in the Bowl the B team trav­elled to neigh­bours Glyn­hir and after a very tight match recorded an out­stand­ing 3-0 win.

Peter Wil­liams and Alan Lewis won 2&1, with Tony Lloyd Jones and Gary Evans and cap­tain Clive Evans, part­nered by Haydn Har­ries, both tak­ing the spoils on the last green.
