Archer continues hot streak

AT last a dry day - and on a great Bramall Park course there was some terrific scoring and hot competition as the final lap for the Order of Merit in the professional and amateur section is now firmly on.

Birchwood’s Phil Archer is on a great run of form and he followed up his win in the Stroke Play event at Denton two days earlier with a great double at Bramall Park to extend his lead at the top of the profession OoM.

He led in the individual pro section with a four-under-par 40 points, ahead of Andy Palmer (Chorley) 39 and Scott Jackson (Disley) 38.

Archer made his a double as his Mere partner Anton Johnson helped him to a fine haul of 45 points top the pro am section ahead of Andy Palmer and Keith Ashton (Bolton) 43 and Dave Green and Gary Winston (Dukinfield) who won a cpo on 42 points from the solid team of Alliance Captain Dave Smith and his loyal and reliable Swinton Park partner Jimmy O’Reilly.


Alliance treasurer Vinny Doyle (Leigh) is leading the amateur OoM and he extended his lead as he partnered Darren Wood (Swinton Park) to 44 points and win a cpo from Stand duo Keith Dingley and Dave Eckersley with Marcus Corfield (Swinton Park) and Dave Smith (Ellesmere) a point off the pace.
