TOM Dolan regained top spot in the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit when
he finished second in the Bromborough Bowl two shots adrift of Enville's
Richard Shaw, writes DAVID BIRTILL.
The Heswall plus one player, who has already won twice this season, at
Hesketh and Eaton, leapfrogged title-holder and Cheshire team-mate Sam
Prince, from Northenden, who was four strokes behind him in third place.
Only 20 points separate the two as the season approaches the half-way stage
with former front runner John Carroll, from Huyton & Prescot, 65 off the
Shaw, meanwhile, opened with 71 then followed up with a fine 67 highlighted
by an eagle at the seventh hole.
