Gary makes home advantage count

North Northumberland League Open Day

The seventh in the series of 10 Open Day Stableford events was held over the pristine Warkworth course on Saturday and proved a resounding success for the host club’s Gary Henderson.

The Warkworth club champion defied a stiff northerly breeze to head up both gross and nett sections by considerable margins – seven and three points respectively.

His gross 37 points equated to a one-under-par 69 – a fine score in the conditions.

Leading returns – Individual gross: G Henderson (Warkworth) 37pts; N Cairns (Dunstanburgh) 30; G Mallaburn (Dunstanburgh) 29; K Atkinson (Magdalene Fields) 28. Nett: G Henderson 41; CW Jobson (Alnwick) 38; G Mallaburn 37; D Lyon (Burgham Pk) 36; M Lynch (Magdalene Flds) 36.
