Home club pair Graham Lawlar (14) and Paul Wright (19) were impressive winners of Tuesday’s penultimate Halifax-Huddersfield Alliance event of the season at Bradley Hall.

They came in with 47 Stableford points, the equivalent of 11 under par, to take the honours by two points from Meltham’s John Wozniak (11) and John Dyson (15).

Both pairs had nett eagles on the third hole and also nett eagles on the back nine in the re-arranged event.

The Bradley Hall pair held a two point lead after the front nine and held that to the end.

There were three pairs on 44 points and the median score was 41, five under par, in ideal scoring conditions with sunshine all day on a dry course with forward tees There were 22 nett eagles recorded.

Two pairs shared top honours in the pro-am event. James Ward and Jonathan Binns (4) of Dewsbury District and Gareth Moore and Roger Tolson (11) of Hanging Heaton scored 41 points.

Both pairs dropped a point on the fourth hole but Moore followed up with an eagle on the par four fifth, holing out with a well stuck seven iron.

However, the Hanging Heaton pair’s front nine lead was lost with a level par back nine.

In the absence of Rob Booth and Simon Race, Ward has an unassailable lead in the Professional Order of Merit with one round to go.

The Club Championship has been regained by Crosland Heath, nine points clear of Dewsbury District with Meltham a further seven points back.

The last Alliance of the season is an individual medal next Tuesday at Dewsbury District for the Page Trophy and the Roger Heap Cup.
