Tiverton’s nominated three-man contingent of Harry Konig, Rhys Cruse and Tom Trowbridge finished a very creditable third in the Devon Club Team Championship at RND on Saturday.
The trio recorded a score of +26 over the first two rounds of the Devon Amateur Championship.
Konig led the way with 74 and 70 to finish level par while Cruse scored 74 and 81 (+11) and Trowbridge carded 85 and 74 (+15).
