Carroll calls the tune at West Lancs

JOHN Carroll, a double Lancashire County champion, proved he could still compete with the best when he won the opening fixture in the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit series with rounds of 68 and 71 in the Crosby Challenge Plate at West Lancs.

The Huyton & Prescot stalwart (pictured) started with four birdies in the first nine holes and added another for good measure on the home stretch, erring only once with a bogey at the short 17th.John Carroll (2).jpg

Plus three ranked Carroll picked up three birdies in the second round marred by two dropped shots.

Royal Liverpool’s Steven Capper, last year’s winner, was runner-up four off the pace.
