Licata defies the elements to restore Total Triumph lead

Licata defies the elements to restore Total Triumph lead


Giuseppe Licata regained pole position in the Total Triumph Order of Merit by overcoming the 24-strong field as well as blustery and wet conditions at The Kendleshire.

In doing so, the head pro at Filton Golf Club emulated his assistant Mark Pitcher’s victory in the previous event of the Gloucester and Somerset PGA Winter Series.

The similarities between the back-to-back successes for the Filton duo ended there, however.

Whereas Pitcher had prevailed at Stinchcombe Hill by four shots with a round of four-under, Licata posted a level par 71 to finish a shot clear of Brickhampton Court’s Ross Langdon.

Pitcher, meanwhile, finished tied-third a shot further back with Bristol Golf Centre trainee Prevan Nayanah-Rajh, and Enmore Park’s David Dixon was fifth on three-over.

Licata had begun the day a quarter of a point adrift of Order of Merit leader Andrew March but his victory plus the latter’s off-day has put him 20.25 points clear of his rival from Brean Golf Club.

Cirencester Golf Club’s Ed Goodwin and his assistant Luke Gaskins lie third and fifth respectively, bookending Weston Super Mare Golf Club’s Ali Balcombe in fourth place.
