Llewellyn fires su­perb 62 to light up Pa­trol event

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

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).
