The Langmoor Trophy, a bogey competition, saw a busy field with one beacon who shone above the rest – five handicapper, Roddy Donaghy, writes Richard Jackman.

Roddy ended up on plus eight with six birdies including three twos on the par threes.

This brilliant score was not going to be beaten, but Mark Scott and James Newcombe, both single figure players, ended up with plus four, normally a score in contention, Scott coming second on countback.

Round one of the seniors’ club championship, had Rob Clapp and Gareth Williams both on 79 followed by Peter Cogan and Roger Turner on 81, and the nett score leaders of Richard Jackman, Patrick Duke and Gareth Williams.

After round two the cream had truly risen to the top in both events as Clapp’s wonderfully consistent form saw him maintain his lead throughout to win with 157 from Williams, 160, and Turner 161.
