Bradley Hall players past and present had a field day when the Holywell Green course staged the seventh event of the Halifax-Huddersfield Alliance season yesterday.

They won both sections, spearheaded by talented pair Andy Shaw and Jamie Smith, who scored 46 points in the am-am section in spite of ultra-low handicaps.

Shaw, recently appointed joint team boss of the Halifax-Huddersfield Union’s select side for the summer campaign, plays off scratch and he must have been impressed with what he saw from plus one player Smith, who developed his skills at Halifax Golf Club.

Smith had six birdies and Shaw an eagle and three birdies in conditions which improved as the day progressed.

The course was still very wet, with casual water on some fairways, but Hall’s former junior organiser Rob Booth, who now plays on the 1836 Tour out of Crosland Heath, and current Hall member Josh Bailes had no complaints.

They took the pro-am honours with 45 points, former Union junior Bailes contributing half the points in spite it being his first outing of the year. He had a nett eagle on the third.

A good entry of 62 pairs included 14 professionals.

The next event is at Outlane on Tuesday, March 18.
