Llewellyn fires superb 62 to light up Patrol event
JOHN Llewellyn lit up the course at Derllys Court Golf Club last week when the seniors played the eighth round of the Dawn Patrol League.
The veteran showed that it’s never too late to pull a great round of golf out of the bag when he scored a net 62 in a maximum score strokeplay, playing off a handicap of 27, which has now been reduced by three strokes.
In second place, vice-captain Hugh Thomas maintained his challenge for the overall title with a solid net 65 and three players, Chris Evans, K Huw L Jones and Ninian Davies, tied on 67.
Roddy Thomas, Graham Owens and Idwal Thomas all had good rounds with net 69s.
With only the best eight scores counting in the final league table, Huw Hafod Jones remains favourite to win the title, but much can happen in the remaining two rounds.
Jones currently holds an eightpoint lead from the consistent Owens, with Thomas just two points behind.
A similar scoring system operates for the veterans (over-70s) table, with this category sure to go down to the last match as Wynne Evans holds a narrow two-point lead from Frank Wride, with Roger Horsfall just a point behind.
Dawn Patrol League points: 1 Jones (54), 2 Owens (46), 3 Thomas (44).
Veterans’ points: Wynne Evans (22), Wride (20), Horsfall (19).
