Somerset’s Compton leads at Captains’ final

first_img Somerset’s Denis Compton holds a narrow one-point lead at the halfway stage of the England Golf Captains’ Final on the Red course at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire.Compton, (Image © Leaderboard Photography) from Minehead & West Somerset, scored 39 points – including a blob – to edge one ahead of David Hawkins (Leighton Buzzard), Hugh Purvis (Long Ashton), Bryan Claringbold (Frilford Heath) and Alan Brack (Crook).The final is being played as part of England Golf’s first Golf Week which celebrates team and handicap golf, with events taking place every day until Friday.Today’s score by Compton marked a turnaround in fortunes from his practice round when he lost five balls and scored 18 points! “My course is links and to come here with trees and things is a bit alien,” he explained with a laugh.“Today my putter went hot for the last four holes and I had a birdie, birdie finish – but I still had a blob on the ninth. I haven’t found that green yet.”Compton, who was captain in 2007 in his club’s 125th anniversary year, is playing in the tournament series for the first time, having qualified at Enmore Park in Somerset. “I had a nice 36 points there and these are probably the only two rounds I’ve done well in this year.”The reason – which is apt, given his name – is that Compton still enjoys playing cricket. “I’m no relation,” he says in answer to the obvious question about connections with the late English cricketer. “But I played for the Somerset second XI and Somerset Colts and I still play for the local club, Timberscombe, on Exmoor. My partner is doing the teas on Saturday.”Cricket and golf have gone hand in hand in his life, for he joined Minehead & West Somerset Golf Club as a junior, following his grandfather and father. His caddy this week is the 2014 captain Phil Arbourne.Click here for the full scores. 11 Aug 2015 Somerset’s Compton leads at Captains’ final last_img read more
