The first Open event of Thetford's golfing season saw a pair from Hertfordshire take the top prizes in the Spring Open.
Nine-handicap Gavin Edwards and his 13-handicap partner Peter Sawyer from East Herts GC won the day with 41pts, pipping Kent Witham (8) and Neal Myers (16) from The Warren in Essex on countback.
Third place was also decided on countback with three pairs coming in with 40pts. Steve Bullent (9) and Richard Cunningham (19) from Great Yarmouth & Caister had the best back nine with 20pts, one better than two other pairs. Nick Robinson (10) & Ian Lacey (5) from Benton Hall took fourth spot with 19 on the back nine and 13 on the last six, pushing the unfortunate David Wheatley (17) & Wayne Howard (14) from Peterborough Milton out of the prizes - their back nine of 19pts only ended with 12 over the last six.
The prize for the best score for a pair including a Thetford player went to Danny Harrod (5) and his guest Mark Sicheri (4) with 40pts.
A total of 48 pairs took part representing 30 different clubs.
Nearest-the-pin winners were Bill Sawings (Maylands) at the 1st, Jake Keeley (Bawburgh) at the 3rd, David Wheatley (Peterborough Milton) at the 11th and Steve Bullent (Gt Yarmouth & Caister) at the 16th.
The next Open event at Thetford is the Mixed Open on Wednesday May 8.
