Thompson takes the Woolston Manor event on count back and Dunn moves to second overall
In the ninth event on the Golf Days UK Essex Tour conditions were tough as players battled it out in the persistent rain to try and make ground on the overall leader Nigel Goude. Woolston Manor hosted the event and despite the constant downpour it was looking fantastic throughout.
Third place on the day was won by newcomer Adam Elwell who managed 31 points. Woolston Manor member Mary-Anne De Cruz took second on count back with her 35 points overall and 19 on the back nine. It was Mick Thompson, however, that took the main prize of a stand bag with his 35 points overall and 20 on the back nine. The nearest the pin prize was taken by Andrew Murray for his delightful approach to the par 3, 17th hole and longest drive was won by Joshua Remejkis with his tee shot making the fairway on the par 5, 5th hole.
Nigel Goude remains at the top of the overall leaderboard, despite being unable to improve on his best 5 scores so far. John Dunn, playing in his fifth event notched up 29 points to move into second spot overall, overtaking Dave Parry who also failed to improve on the day. As it stands, Goude is set to be crowned Essex Tour champion and win the trip to the five star Resort Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire. Dunn would take the custom fit set of irons supplied by Chris Potter Golf.
However with the final event at Stock Brook Manor next month, it is not over by any stretch. With Parry determined to fight back and a few more contenders due to return the final is certainly one not to be missed.
