Bridlington Golf Club staged the second annual Marshall Shoes Trophy last Sunday and the day was a resounding success.

Playing in glorious weather, all the competitors thoroughly enjoyed the format of the day which pairs up a junior with an adult.

The event was the idea of Bridlington shoe shop owner David Marshall and aims encourage junior golfers. The inaugural event last year was restricted to Bridlington Golf Club members but this year it was opened up to a number of other local courses.

Flamborough Head Golf Club boosted the figures sending six pairs and Hainsworth Park Golf Club also competed. The hope is the event will continue to grow in popularity.

During the day the Marshall family kindly hosted the halfway house and at the prize presentation Anthony Howarth, junior organiser at Bridlington Golf Club, thanked them for their generosity during the day. Bradley Marshall was presented all the prizes to the winners.

There was some exceptional scores returned by the 36 pairs but the eventual winners were the pairing of Brendan Wright and Danny Brown, who managed to get their hands on the trophy by virtue of having the best back nine holes over three other pairs, all tied on the same score of 54 points (10-under-par).
