Outlane will be looking for a fourth Halifax-Huddersfield Alliance win of the season in their next event on their own course in 12 days’ time.

The club’s domination continued on Tuesday when John Lawton (4) and Brent Ashton (13) pipped Ray Owen (15) and Paul Crosse (11) from host club Crosland Heath on a back-six count-back after both pairs had scored 46 points.

Third place among the all-amateur combinations went to Rob Speight (4) and Fred Speight (10) of Dewsbury District on 45 points.

There were clear winners in the pro-am section, Rob Booth and Paul Gledhill (9) of Crosland Heath on 45 points. They were four ahead of James Ward and Fergus Barron (3) of Dewsbury.

The early starters had the best of the weather as the wind picked up through the afternoon, accompanied by heavy drizzle later on.

The Crosland Heath course was in good condition, although very wet in some places off the fairways. The greens were true but a little slow.

Play was off the forward winter tees and using mats on the fairways the par for the course was around 40 points. There were many nett birdies and almost 30 nett eagles.

Outlane’s three successes this season, in seven events so far, have come with different players.
