Win No2 for Ryall

Win No2 For Ryall

Veteran George Ryall recorded his second  Gloucester and Somerset PGA win of the season with a one-under-par round on the Channel course at Burnham & Berrow.

“This is one of my favourite courses,” said the 60-year-old Mendip Spring teaching professional who was recently attached to Burnham.

He was the only player to beat par with 37 Stableford points, one clear of previous week’s winner Ross Langdon (Brickhampton Court).

The early calm gave way to rain and a strengthening wind as Ryall carded four  birdies, including  three in succession from  the fourth.  Missed  short  putts cost him shots on the final two holes.

Although Langdon made an eagle at the fourth and added three birdies he just failed to catch Ryall.

Somerset  amateur  Matt Kippen (Enmore Park) took third with 35  two ahead of Cotswold Edge’s Kristian Crane and Cirencester’s Ed Goodwin.

G&S PGA captain Paul Gravell (Players Club), Luke Gaskins (Brickhampton Court) and Shane Kaye shared the final prize money with 32 points.

Total Triumph Order of Merit leader Giuseppe Licata (Chipping Sodbury) suffered a final hole disaster  to drop out of the top ten on the day and allow Ryall to close the gap to 17 points.
