Scratch handicap John Turner jnr took 38 points from the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush GC on Saturday to claim the PG Stevenson Memorial Trophy.

The par fives, two and nine, fell to birdie fours and the fifth took a shot back to leave Jihn with 19 points for the first half of his round. The return leg gave the same 19 points result with a very similar pattern; birdie three at thirteen, bogey four at fourteen and a birdie four at seventeen, two under par gross and 38 points lodged.

Michael Clements was just a point back on 37 with a nice two to his credit at six. This helped him to 20 points out. The end of the back nine was the telling stage for Michael as he slipped in a birdie three at sixteen but finished with a double bogey six at the last to add just 17 for the inward nine to miss out by a point. Third spot was occupied by J Frazer on 35 points. Just 15 were scored in an outward nine which included a couple of double bogeys. A two dropped in at thirteen and this helped to gather another 20 for the back nine.

Best Gross winner was a 76 from P Cameron, this included three birdies at par fives and a three at sixteen. He also opened and closed his account with double bogey sixes.
