Eighteen shots clear of his nearest rival and Valley View Golf Club has fourth consecutive championship winner.May 14, 2014 3:05am
Gary Cleary finished 18 shots clear of nearest rival to claim his fourth consecutive Valley View Golf Club championship on Saturday.
Gary Cleary claimed a fourth consecutive Valley View Golf Club championship title on Saturday in style with a final round of 78 in trying conditions.
That score gave Cleary a three-round total of 236 and an 18-shot buffer from his nearest challenger in Mick Coyne.
The win was also Cleary’s fifth title in six years.
No other golfer has won four consecutive championships at Valley View and there is only one other with more wins — Alan Johnson, who won the first championship contested at the club in 1958. Johnson won six out of nine club championships, a feat Cleary said he hoped to equal or better. Two other players — Herb Prior and Albert Adams — have also won five championships.
Scoring in this year’s championships was heavily affected by a strong wind in last Sunday’s second round and the damp conditions that prevailed on Saturday.
