Brooks blazes past Barrett as the race heats up
43 players enjoyed a round of golf in glorious conditions at Weston Park during the second event of the Golf Days UK Norfolk Tour 2012 – The Race to Turnberry.
With a trip to Turnberry Resort, Scotland on offer for the player with the best five Stableford scores players were determined to post a good score. Great Yarmouth and Caister member Josh Brooks did exactly that, scoring an impressive 41 points off his ¾ handicap of 8. Dean Ashton of Barnham Broom took the runner up prize with 38 points and Kevin Stokes also of Great Yarmouth and Caister scored 37 points to clinch third spot. The nearest the pin prize was awarded to Terry Hegarty of Fakenham Golf Club for his superb approach to the 152 yard, Par 3, 16th hole. The longest drive went to Josh Brooks for his 276 yard drive down the Par 5, 4th hole.
After two events Josh sits at the top of the table on 75 points with Nick Barrett, who won the first event last month, dropping to second place with 71 points. As it stands, Nick is on course to win the set of custom fit irons
supplied by Chris Potter Golf of Blofield. However, with the best five scores counting and 8 events to play there is a long way to go yet. For players posting above 36 points they can expect a handicap adjustment for future events on the tour.
The next event is at Barnham Broom Valley course with a tee times from 2pm on Friday 27th April. To enter phone 01603 505533 or you can sign up to the next event by clicking here
