Just weeks after being presented with his first major golf trophy at Leighton Buzzard’s Plantation Road club, 51-year-old car dealership manager Declan Shannon has won his way through to the final of another.
Declan, pictured being presented with the Henley Cup he won last autumn by Immediate Past Captain Simon Rossiter, teamed up with his fellow former Three Locks partner Paul Whiteman to win a week-end qualifier for the final of Leighton’s Captains’ Cup on Saturday week (April 9).
Declan, 51, and Paul, who both joined the Leighton club three years ago, carded 40 points to beat Manny Barker and Steve Leng by a shot.
In the other weekend qualifier, Peter Sheriden and Gareth McCready won on countback after carding 41 points with Duncan Smith and Geoff Barker….the 20 points they scored on the last nine holes edging out the runners-up.
