Golf: Garnering Rich pickings on tour

First published in Sport

A LAST-MINUTE switch took the fourth round of the Par Tee Golf Societies’ winter tour from Scalm Park to Swallow Hall Golf Club.

Rich Garner – playing as a guest on the tour – won with 36 points off a 15 handicap.

Gary Smith bagged his second runners-up spot on 35 points, while third place went to Dave Kilner on 34.

Garner also claimed the longest drive trophy with a beautiful straight drive on the 328-yard tenth hole.

Martin Alderson-Crombie claimed his second consecutive nearest the pin trophy on the 180-yard par-three 16th.

Tour leader is Paul Hillaby, but Smith, the 2011 York & District Golf League champion, climbed six places to second, nine points shy of Hillaby.

The next round is at Aldwark Manor GC on December 22.
