Leaderboard

Penge posted an opening round of 64 for nine under including eight birdies and an eagle to give himself a cushion ahead of the second round tomorrow. 

There are four players tied for second with John-Ross Galbraith (Whitehead Golf Club), Jonathan Caldwell (Clandeyboye Golf Club), Josh Hilleard (Farrington Park/G4L) and Richard Mansell (Beau Desert Golf Club) all going eight under for opening rounds of 65 to be one shot behind Penge.

Galbraith, Caldwell, and Mansell all went bogey-free on their first eighteen of the week with all aforementioned picking up an eagle and six birdies. Hilleard meanwhile also had an eagle to his name off the par 4-second hole and could’ve been leading if it wasn’t for a bogey on seventeen. 

It was a strong day of scoring with inviting conditions in Tarporley with Daniel Gaunt (Burhill Golf Club) ending up on seven under with eight birdies to put in a good showing.

James Frazer (Machynys Peninsula) set out from the traps in some style going seven deep through his first six including a hole in one on the 14th before finishing day one on six under.
