Great win for Ian Clarke
Senior team player Ian Clarke (LIndrick) won the NC Senior’s Championship at Ponteland yesterday by 4 strokes from his nearest competitor shooting rounds of two under par 70 on both days of the Championship.
After the first round on Tuesday Ian, who was celebrating his 62nd birthday in style, finished two strokes behind the leader Ian McEntee (South Moor) and put celebrations on hold to prepare for the following day.
After dropping strokes on the first two holes in the afternoon Ian dug deep to produce four birdies and twelve pars for a second round of 70 to take the title. Now was the time to celebrate!
Fellow Lindrick member Kevin Parkes finished in 5th place with scores of 73 and 74 followed by Alan Wright (Ganstead Park ) with 73 -76 and Richard Holt (Woodsome Hall) 11th with 78 -74.
