Neville put his best foot forward and showed regular playing partner Jeff Mills wins are not as easy with him around.
Neville’s 43 points consisted of some solid ball striking and draining putts at will. This good form kept Jeremy Ezard in the runner-up position with a score that would win most weeks — 42 points. Next best went to Des Phelan ahead of Bill Leviston on count back both on 39.
The nearest-the pin prizes went to Mat Mahney on the third, Jeremy Ezard running one up to the eighth and Gary Bow plonking it onto the 13th.
