Liam Moakes 17th Dec, 2019

AN OUTSTANDING score of 45 points was enough for Derek Keenan and Simon Jayes to win round three of the Broadway Golf Club Winter League.

Fifty-two men’s pairs were in action in the greensomes match in which both team members executed their drives, chose the best shot and then played alternately to the green.

Matching the superb score to earn a close second on countback were Jamie Thomas and Callum Millard, ahead of Duncan Spittle and Russell Payne who came in with an impressive 43 points to seal third. James Mooney and Adam Sutton brought in a commendable fourth placing with 42 points.

With the fourth round scheduled to take place early in the new year, all teams now look forward to getting back on the course.

Elsewhere, Broadway Golf Club was delighted to host its annual trophy presentation evening during which winners from all sections of the club were invited along to receive their awards.

Looking back over the golfing season, it was clear some spectacular golf had been played, culminating in a full house on the night.

One of the many awards bestowed on the night was the Lloyd Cup – a handsome silver challenge cup presented in 1912 by the then president Mr T H Lloyd.

This has become one of the most prestigious trophies at Broadway, awarded to the winner of a match play challenge run throughout the season.

After a hard-fought final match, this year’s deserved winner was Richard Preen, with the runner-up being Callum Millard.
