West End Alliance is CANCELLED.

Dewsbury District Golf Club Tuesday 22 October 2019

Stalwart of the Winter Alliance and last years President Ed Pearson brought at new member David Hoyles of Woodsome Hall to the Dewsbury Alliance and won the am-am section with a fine 44 points from the home clubs Harry Mowl and Ben Walker who had 42 points. Nigel Hirst playing in his last alliance at his home club as professional was just pipped for first place by Alliance President Richard Lambert partnered by Steve Floyd.

The weather was kind with no rain and a light westerly breeze but the course was still very wet from all the recent rain. In spite of the wet ground the course played well and this was reflected in the good scoring.

With only 3 pairs in the pro-am Crosland Heath's Richard Lambert and Steve Floyd (5) came in with 4 net birdies for 38 points, just one point better than Dewsbury's Nigel Hirst and club Captain Ian Pearson (17) who also had 4 net birdies. Last were Crosland Heath's assistant Alex Malins and Captain Dave Delooze (19) a further 3 points back.

A late entry replacing an injured James Ward and going out first were Harry Mowl (scr) and Ben Walker (2) of Dewsbury who carded a fine 42 points with 6 birdies and no bogies to hold the lead for over 90 minutes. Crosland Heath's Ed Pearson (17) and Woodsome Hall's David Hoyles (14) came in with 44 points with a net eagle on the 12th and 8 net birdies for an unassailable lead while their playing partners Graham Simpson (18) and George Carrol (14) of Marsden took 3rd place with 41 points. The only other net eagles were scored by Duncan Ramsden (18) of Meltham on the par 3 last hole and by Sheldon McFadzean (22) of Bradley Hall on the par 5 11th.

The last Alliance before Christmas is at West End Golf Club on bonfire night Tuesday 5 November.
