GOLF: Padbrook's Stuart Disney leads Order of Merit
5:34pm Monday 31st December 2012 in Sport
PADBROOK Park’s advanced Professional Stuart Disney is leading the Devon PGA Order of Merit after two recent wins.
He won a Devon Winter Series event at Torquay before taking eighth spot in the next event at East Devon.
But he romped to a three shot victory after firing a four under par 67 on Saunton’s West course.
He started slowly with a dropped shot on the second but a run of five successive three’s including three birdies set him on course. Three more birdies followed on the back nine as he left Kevin Harper trailing in second.
Disney said: “I’ve been practicing hard on my game lately and it’s started to pay dividends in my results. My score at Saunton would have been even better but for a dropped shot on the last.”
The Devon County Golf Union held its annual dinner and presentation at Padbrook Park. The Chanel League Trophy was presented to Captain Adam Bridgewater.
He named Royal North Devon’s Jimmy Mullen as his player of the year.
