Falmouth Golf Club saw another strong entry of 78 players for round two of the Summer League in pleasant conditions on Saturday, writes Keith Rashleigh.

Grant Nicholls was in great form and carded an untouchable 44 stableford points to take top spot. He recorded birdies at the third and sixth holes on his way to a level par front nine for 23 points.

His solid back nine saw him add another 21 points which was enough for him to win by two points from David Cuffin, who returned respective nines of 18 and 24 points.

Third was David “Dickie” Dickinson the club president with respective nines of 20 and 21 points for his 41 point total. Fourth was former Falmouth Town footballer Graham Heard, who also carded a total of 41 points, while fifth also with 41 points was David Drewett.

There were just three "twos". Paul Jose at the second, Kris Mazumder at the fourth and Ben Browning at the 11th. The easiest hole on the course was the 11th averaging +0.05 and the most difficult was the fifth, which averaged + 1.20.
