Paul Tunnicliff returned to winning ways in taking out the fourth and final round of the Penketh Plate on Saturday.
The 13-handicapper was back at his trophy-hunting best in heading the field with a very tidy net 69 off the blue tees on a course playing longer than usual for the summer after all the recent rain.
Apart from a rough opening hole, he was steadiness personified in recording matching 41s for his two nines, with all aspects of his game on song.
Peter Green has been playing well for some weeks now and he kept his run going with a 79 off the stick for a net 71 to claim second place.
Paul's playing partner Brendan Doyle was the only other golfer to match par, continuing his solid form with a net 72 for third.
Barry Rhodes took fourth on countback from former Waahi Taakaro member James Campion after both recorded net 74. James's 78 was the best gross of the day.
Next were the quartet of Keri Kotua, Maurice Woodhouse, Lewis Wilson and Bryan Ramsey who all came home with 75.
Jasper Broad-Kolff, Warwick King and Chris Kenchington all shot 76 to complete the top 12.
The twos money was shared by Keri and Andy Isle, who both birdied No 11.
While Paul took the match of the day honours, Barry claimed the Penketh Plate on countback from Brendan after the best three of four rounds were totalled. They both finished on 214 but Barry won by dint of having the lowest net score - a dazzling 64 in the second round. Third was Peter Watson on 216 followed by Paul on 217.
And with the fourth and final round of the Burns Philp Trophy on February 5 washed out, Paul McCrae has won the stableford competition with a three round total of 112. Second was Peter Watson on 110. He was followed by Steve Russell (107) and Aaron Kotua (105).
Next week (Feb 26) we play the third round of the Stubberfield Cup, a net plus putts competition off the blue tees.
On the Sunday (Feb 27) we host the second round of the Sloan Trophy so we will need team members and club volunteers to help us run the day.
