Reigning West Region PGA champion Adam Frayne, the Yelverton assistant, won the Devon PGA medal at Teignmouth with a two-under par round of 67.
On a bitterly cold day the excellent condition and alterations at Teignmouth proved a tough test with Jason Fullard (Torquay) the only other player to break par in the strong field of 27.
He showed great consistency with a birdie at the sixth and then an eagle at the par-five 13th plus 16 pars to return 68.
Frayne made a flying start and was three-under though four. He later birdied three holes in succession from the 12th.
New Staddon Heights club professional Dan Hendriksen shot 69 while Neil Holman (Torbay Golf Centre) and Ben Martin (Exeter Golf and Country Club) shared fourth on 70.
The talented Kevin Harper produced an interesting card. He shot 73 with eight penalty shots resulting from four lost balls. Three birdies and an eagle completed a real mixed bag.
