At Colne, the Hewitt Bowl 36-hole competition was played over the weekend.

Round one was won by Phil Halstead’s 85-20-65, with Tony Kegg second, two shots adrift (83-16-67) and Richard Taylor (81-13-68) third.

Round two saw Steve Parker finish out in front with 77-11-66), three shots clear of Howard Proctor (81-12-69), who was second on the card from Steven Shepherd (82-13-69).

That meant Halstead (65+75=140) was the winner by virtue of having the lowest first round.

Brian Earnshaw (69+74=140) was overall second, with Harry Bolton (69+73=142) third.

Meanwhile, Colne Ladies’ Handicap Team won both their matches, beating Great Harwood 4.5-2.5, and Wilpshire 6.5-0.5.

The ladies also played for the Handicap Shield Qualifer, and for the second week in a row, Beverley Wellock won with a 83-12-71 from Debra Wood (101-28-73) and Liz Reddy (90-15-75).
