Winners of Winter Pairs 7 were Steve Raine & Willie Crook with +65 from Stan Zydagio & Lloyd Eagling with +18 and Wendy Walker & Di Abbott with +10.
Leaders now are Steve & Willie with 13 points; Lloyd with 9 and Keith Rodgers with 7.
The scoring is 4 for first, 2 for second and 1 for third. Equal places share the points eg two pairs at 1st get 3 each.
Please note that the overall champion has to be an individual not a pair. That means that Lloyd is the current leader for the individual prize.
Leaders for the Farr Cup for similar pairs are Steve & Willie . Leading for the Black Cup for Mixed Pairs are the Aulds with 6.5 points.
Yet more success for Nottinghamshires Ankush Khandelwal who won the Grand Masters Pairs on 24th/25th February 2018. He partnered John Atthey and in the cross- imped event they finished with more than double the runners up score.
