Clarkin is top of the shots

CURTIS Clarkin swept to the top of the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit when he won the Penwortham Rose Bowl with rounds if 70 and 69 for a one-over-par total.

The Nelson player moved 50 points ahead Huyton & Prescot stalwart John Carroll who prevailed in the curtain-raising Crosby Challenge Plate earlier in the month.

Clarkin produced a mixed bag of birdies and bogeys in the morning before handing in a flawless card in the afternoon.
