Goodwin misses out by one shot after 'mud ball' incident

First published in Latest Sport

CIRENCESTER Golf Club pro Ed Goodwin can count himself unlucky not to have been among the winners at the first G&S PGA Medal of the year held at Minchinhampton Old Course.

Goodwin had to par the last to join the best scores at 69 (two under par) but he suffered a ‘mud ball’ which led to a bogey and total of 70.

Goodwin’s assistant pro James Harraway shot a 72 to also get among the points.

With the sun shining and very light winds, the layout over the Common didn’t prove the most taxing and three players broke 70: Bristol Golf Centre pro Giuseppe Licata, Burnham and Berrow assistant Shane Kaye and Somerset amateur Matt Kippen.

The share of first place saw Licata make a significant move towards the top of the Total Triumph Order of Merit as current leader Rod Hibbitt (Cotswold Edge) suffered an off day with a 73.
