Walker and Houghton triumph

THERE were tight finishes in both the weekend and midweek Turkey Trot competitions at Caversham Heath.

Only a point covered the first six pairs on Saturday with two points separating the top three in midweek.

Sean Houghton and Simon Walker took the weekend prize on countback from Gareth Ford and Darren Bonney, both pairs with 46 points – the winners recording 25 points on the back nine.

It was also tight for third place with countback needed to decide between four pairs, all on 45 points. Richard Serrano and James Saunders got the nod — on the back three — from Matt Robertson and Will Tate, Jack Russell and Andy King and Mathew Brakspear and Matthew Murphy. Brakspear and Murphy were in prime position standing on the 17th tee, but they then proceeded to record no points on the 17th and only one point on the last.

Matt Robertson and Andrew Robertson won the Midweek Turkey Trot with 45 points, including 25 points on the back nine. Runners-up, one point behind with 44 points were Scott Iremonger and James Millard. Third were Roger Landon and Robert Davidson on countback from Tony Gonzalez and Steve Streak, both with 43 points.
