Formby’s Paul Kinnear makes it four wins – but Prince still rules

ENGLAND international and Formby Golf Club member Paul Kinnear won his fourth Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit tournament of the season when he captured the St Annes Old Links Trophy.

But the Formby man, who beat Lancashire team-mate Oliver Clarke, from Hillside, on a card play-off on one-under-par total of 143, trails Northenden’s Sam Prince by 100 points in the merit race.

And with only one event remaining, the Trafalgar Trophy at Nelson next Sunday,  Prince is hot favourite to claim the title for the first time.

LEADING SCORES:  143 Paul Kinnear (Formby) 73 70, Oliver Clarke (Hillside) 72 71; 144 Callum Blinkhorn (S&A) 73 71; 145 Sam Prince (Northenden) 73 72; 146 Jonathan Beesley (Mere) 74 72; 147 Joe Banks (West Lancs) 73 74;, Harry Harwood (St Annes Old Links) 72 75; 149 Max Penney (Alderley Edge) 74 75; 151 Jack Shelley (Formby) 77 74, Callum McPhillips (Formby) 75 76, James McCormick (Styal) 73 78; 152 Henry Tomlinson (Royal Lytham) 79 73.
