One of the region’s most consistent professionals for more than two decades, who recently moved from Haigh Hall to the nearby Chilli Dip Academy at Blackrod, opened up with a flawless eight-under-par 62 to spread-eagle the field.

He was less consistent in a second round 67, which included four bogeys offset by seven birdies as he claimed the title he last won in 1995 by three shot from Lee Park’s Chris Crowder.

Fleetwood’s David Corsby was third, seven off the pace as Knott End’s Paul Walker retain the senior title.

Meanwhile, the action moves to Royal Lytham & St Annes on Thursday for the county matchplay championship. The morning semi-finals feature Steve Parry (NWGA Hart Common) against Matt Harrison (Formby) and James Barr (Chilli Dip Academy) faces Hesketh assistant Curtis Dean.

LEADING SCORES: 129 Craig Corrigan (Chilli Dip Academy)  62 67; 132 Chris Crowder (Lee Park) 66 66: 136 David Corsby (Fleetwood) 67 69; 137 Martin Edge (Hesketh) 69 68; 138 Barry Taylor (Houghwood) 67 71; 139 Ian Singleton (IDS Golf) 69 70, David Smith (Swinton Park) 66 73.
