Broadway golfers continue battle for Winter League honours

THE PAIRING of Juliet Bourne and Debbie Donoghue claimed first place in the fourth round of Broadway Golf Club ladies’ Winter League.

With the course still playing magnificently, the ladies were eager to compete and the weather was surprisingly kind to the 20 pairs in action in the Foursomes match, which was played over nine holes and saw some impressive scoring.

Finding their form on the day with a superb 16 points were Bourne and Donoghue who just edged Linda Carruthers and Pat Righton into second place with a commendable 15 points.

In third place were Irene Hawkes and Bev Howard, whilst Julia Fortescue and Rachel Rigg were fourth as both pairs scored 15 points and were separated on countback.

BROADWAY’S men were also out at the weekend for the fifth round of their Winter League, bracing themselves for the promised sub-zero temperatures.

Resilient as ever and keen to maintain or better their position in the league table, the 46 pairs strode out to play in the Four-Ball Better Ball competition.

Despite the bitter cold, Terry Brotherton and Mick Sandalls battled on and came in with an exceptional 43 points to win on the day.

Just edged out on countback and taking a worthy second place were Chris Smith and Steve Webb, closely followed into third by John Richards and Alan Stevenson with an excellent 42, leaving Nigel Bird and Rob Lord in fourth place with 41.

All teams now await the next round, eager to get back out on the course to continue their quest for top spot.
