Seventh heaven as four share lead

2309North David Shacklady

Birdies flew in thick and fast in the first round of the PGA in England and Wales (North) Carus Green Cumbria Open.

Four players will go into the last day at Kendal club Carus Green tied on seven-under-par 64 - including the irrepressible David Shacklady who is bidding to retain his Michael Slater Order of Merit crown.

The Mossock Hall man opened with five straight pars but it was a bogey at the 318-yard sixth that stirred him into action.

He birdied the next three holes and repeated the act on the last three, picking up eight all told.

His score was matched by Swinton Park's David Smith, Bedlingtonshire's Mathew Webb and former PGA in England and Wales (North) region champion Michael Jones, from Royal Liverpool.
