Fraser’s in seventh heaven at Bromborough

HAZEL Grove’s Fraser McLeod won the Cheshire Strokeplay Championships for a second time with a seven-under-par total at 281 at Bromborough.

The opening round gave a hint of what was to follow as McLeod, Ben Hallam (Wychwood Park), Jake Hibbert (Delamere Forest) and Dom Barnes (Caldy) all posted 68s with the latter claiming the first round prize on a countback.

More difficult conditions on round two saw Lewis George (Delamere Forest) show his class and move into contention with a best-of-

Round three produced the best score of 70 from Prestbury youngster Josh Turnock after countback from George but McLeod kept up his momentum with 71 .

George pressed his claims for the title with a best-of-the-day 69 to take the Leading Colt Trophy as he finished with a -5 total of 283 which also won him the Israel Sidebottom Trophy as the runner-up.

But it was not enough to prevent McLeod continuing his smooth path to glory as he finished with a birdie on the final hole. He will represent Cheshire in the National County finals at Woodhall Spa in September.

The trophy for the best over-35s was won by David Peel (Stockport).

The team, to represent Cheshire in the County team finals at East Devon in September was George led the youngsters Jake Hibbert and Oscar Doran.
