Wayne Maciuk dropped only one shot in 11 holes in the second week of the Priors Hall Winter League as he triumphed by a single point from Eddie McGoldrick and Stuart Bayes (both 27).

Nigel Ougham enjoyed the same margin of victory in the third Seniors Winter Eclectic event as he birdied the third and seventh holes on his way to a winning total of 26 points. Tom O’Donnell, Ian Hunter, John McConnell and Lewis Watt claimed the next four places.


Philip Woolley carded the best score in the second round of Rushden’s Winter League as he bagged 42 points in the Saturday competition.
