Winter League (Week Four): Benign weather and the great condition of the course was reflected in high scores. Steadily progressing from 20th in week one to seventh and fourth in weeks two and three, Kevin Murphy topped the lot in week four with 42pts. Second and third places were decided on countback, with both Ritchie Robson and Alan Dodd scoring 40pts. Five players all scored 39pts, but countback gave Wayne Belisle fourth place. A moderate payout in the twos – Alan Dodd, Barry Farrar and Connor Thompson at the 2nd, Michael Bell at the 4th and Alan Craigs and Chris Jobson at the 15th. By virtue of his improving scores, Murphy heads the Zecca Accumulator with 116pts from Peter Lewis on 115. Two players, Belisle and Eric Johnson, share third on 113. Finally, Murphy tops the Easyway Order of Merit with 31pts followed by Belisle on 24 and Cyril Jobson on 20.
