Denley rues missed Shirehampton putt
JOSH Denley, Chipping Sodbury, missed a short putt on the final green and failed to win the Gloucestershire Colts Championship in driving rain and wind at Shirehampton.
Had the ball dropped he would have drawn level with Kenny Overthrow (Painswick) and his lower second round of 71 would have earned him the title, but he had to settle for second place on countback.
Defending champion Overthrow followed a magnificent 67 in the first round with an afternoon 76.
Scratch player Denley, who opened with 73, beat Jake Phillips (Brickhampton Court 72, 72) on countback.
