With the weather set fair, Ward and Jones came in with a magnificent 36 points to take first place and now go on to qualify for one of the 16 area finals.
Earning a worthy second place with an excellent 34 points were Chris Moulder and Pat Righton, leaving Linda Carruthers and Annabelle Carter to take third with 32. Jenny Brindley and Barb Buggin performed well to also earn 32 but lost out on countback giving them fourth.
JOHN EAVES found his form in style to win Broadway Seniors’ open competition
Despite a mixture of sunshine and heavy showers, the course was playing splendidly, providing some excellent scoring opportunities. With 35 clubs participating the field was packed with 107 keen golfers.
Striding in with an incredible 44 points to take first position was Broadway’s Eaves to finish three points clear of the rest.
John Mann, who was visiting from Lutterworth, certainly found Broadway’s course to his liking scoring a superb 41 points for second place.
Home player John Musgrove earned a commendable third with an excellent 40 points, leaving Terence Nolan, from Fulford Heath Golf Club, to clinch fourth with 39.
MIKE HUMPSTON lifted the prestigious Harvey Cup after finishing two points clear of his rivals.
The Harvey Cup was presented in 1964 by former member Fred Harvey. Fred was always an enthusiastic supporter of the more senior members of the club and donated the trophy specifically for the over-55’s.
After heavy rain the previous day, things had dried up beautifully leaving the course in peak condition with ample chance to score well.
Bringing in an outstanding score of 41 points to claim the prestigious trophy was Humpston, closely followed by Michael Lindner who took second place with a superb 39.
Barry Deeming also achieved 39 taking third on countback, leaving Rob Lord a worthy fourth with 38.
