Doherty strolls to trophy glory
BURY’S Ciaran Doherty, winner of the Galvin Green Northern Order of Merit in 2014, made an early move to recapture the title when he swept to a comprehensive eight stroke victory in the Henriques Trophy at Hesketh, the third event in a series of 29.
He opened with a four-under-par 68 containing five birdies then added another six in a second round 67 which included a hat-trick on the last three holes.
The Lancashire County player moved into fourth position in the merit stakes, 70 points adrift of Northenden’s Cameron Massie.
Next up is the Southport & Ainsdale Bowl on May 20 followed a day later by the Formby Hare.
