ENMORE Park’s David Dixon won his third Total Triumph Strokeplay title in style at Henbury Golf Club.

An afternoon round of 62 gave him a winning total of 133, which is the lowest recorded in the long running event.

His morning circuit in the steady rain took him 71 strokes to complete, but after lunch and in much better weather, he reduced the Bristol layout to just 62 blows.

He held a two-stroke advantage over Henbury Assistant Luke Derrick, who was the only player in the field to beat par in both rounds as he followed his opening 68 by going one better in the afternoon.

As has seemingly become the norm for this event, the weather gods decided that rain should fall and a fair amount did during the morning play.

The course held up well and produced a good test for the players with accurate approach play leading to plenty of birdies on offer whilst punishing those who strayed from the short grass.

Dixon followed up his previous wins in the event in 2004 and 2013 with a second round that only saw threes and fours marked on the scorecard including a run of seven consecutive threes from the seventh hole.

Derrick played some superb golf and his two rounds included no less than four birdies on the short holes.

He shared the lunchtime lead with Clevedon’s Ashley Mansell with James Hannam one stroke further back on 69.

Mansell carded six birdies after lunch but a few costly holes left him posting a level par round of 69 and leaving him in third spot.

Another player to make half a dozen birdies in the afternoon round was Ed Goodwin who bettered par by one to share fourth with Hannam, who replicated his morning round once again to end at level par overall.

Filton’s Giuseppe Licata defied a troublesome neck injury to finish sixth with rounds or 70 and 69.

Lee Corfield and Ross Langdon shared seventh on 141 whilst George Ryall took the final prize money on 142 in ninth.

Thanks go to Henbury Golf Club for allowing use of their course for the event and also to loyal sponsor Neil Mossman of Total Triumph Motorcycles in Taunton for his continued support of the G&S PGA.
