OUTLANE’S Douglas Clark Cup was another triumph for one of the club’s juniors when young Nathan Lockwood had a round that got better and better.
Lockwood’s round did not look too promising after he dropped two shots on the first hole, followed by another dropped shot on the second.
But then he then produced a stunning 12-hole run to finish with a winning 63 nett. A fine reward for some superb play and a clutch of birdies.
Early leader Paul Walker had a one-over-par 72 gross, 64 nett, which looked like a winning score until late starter Lockwood (inset) got into full swing. Recent results have seen a number of the club’s juniors reducing their handicaps and winning trophies. Outlane’s presentation night will this year have a youthful feel to it.
The Douglas Clark Cup was donated by his widow in 1966 in recognition of the club’s generosity in giving the Huddersfield Rugby League players a membership block booking. Douglas Clark played for Great Britain and brought many fine players from Fartown to the club – and the Aussies were fine golfers as well as being well known on the rugby field.
