Esherwood eases to victory at Costessey Park
The mid way point has been reached on Golf Days UK Norfolk Tour 2012 – The Race to Turnberry. The fifth event was played at Costessey Park golf course which was in fantastic condition. Tour regular and Great Yarmouth and Caister member, Cain Esherwood came out on top with a score of 37 points. Despite a rocky start to his round, Eshwerwood fought back to took full advantage of the good scoring conditions.
Second place went to Costessey Park member Vernon Anderson who posted a solid 34 points. Playing in his first event on the tour, Anderson had the win in his grasp, but a stuttering finish saw him hand victory to Esherwood. 33 points was enough for Deon Ruiters to take third place on countback from 2011 Norfolk Tour winner Randy Reynolds.
Nearest the pin was won by Chris Baikie on the tough 14th and the long drive competitions were won by Josh Brooks (single figure handicap) and John Sadler (double figure handicap) on the tricky second hole.
With tour leader Kevin Goude having an off day the chasing pack took full advantage. Goude’s lead (160) is now just one point from Adam Saunders (159) and a whole host of players within striking distance.
Remember it is the player with the best five scores throughout the year who will be crowned the Norfolk Tour Champion and will win the trip to the wonderful Turnberry Resort in Scotland. With five events to go on the tour, anyone can still win!
The next opportunity to get a score on the board in the Race to Turnberry is Friday 17th August Swaffham Golf Club.
