Banks impresses

He led the 27 qualifiers for the East Anglian Open which will be played at The Rayleigh Club on September 25 and 26.

Runner-up with level par was Bruce Cuff of Duke's Meadows Golf and Tennis. He had three birdies.

Three players were joint third at one-over-par. They were Mark Talbott (Thorpe Hall) who had the only eagle of the day on the 482-yard par five 12th hole, Mark Alexander (MA Golf) and Darren Turner (South Essex Golf Centre).

All players with a score of eight-over-par will tee up in the prestigious East Anglian Open competing to have their name engraved on a trophy which has in the past been won by such illustrious names as Reg Knight, Eddie Whitcombe, Brian Huggett and Ian Poulter.
