Count back was needed to decide the winners of Tuesday’s first Halifax Huddersfield and District Golf Alliance meeting of 2017, held at Hanging Heaton.

Eddie Casper (11) and John Morris (17) of Outlane got the verdict from Nick Muffitt (15) and Chris Atkinson (13) of Crow Nest Park after both pairs had scored 43 points.

West End’s Murray Powell (15) and Rick Stimpson (11) just missed out on the prizes with 42 points.

Heavy overnight rain left the course very wet and play was from mats on the fairways.

The greens were very good and firm enough to stop the ball pugging. There was no wind and it was sunny for most of the day and not cold until late in the afternoon.

There were eight gross or nett eagles, four on the first/10th hole, and a fine gross eagle on the 14th by Casper.

With most of the professionals away at the TGI conference at the Belfry, there were only two in the pro-am section.

The home club’s Garreth Moore and Jacob Scargill (5) scored 39 points to beat Dewsbury’s James Ward and Danny Hartley (1) by one.

Scores - Pro-am: 1, G.Moore Pro & J.Scargill 5 (Hanging Heaton) 39; 2, J.Ward Pro & D.Hartley 1 Dewsbury 38.
