John Bidwell felt 144 would be enough to win the Zoli Z-Sport top prize and claim the Clay Shooting Classic Sporting trophy, but Martin Myers went two better and, according to John, he “beat the course” – with one more day of shooting still to come.
Karl Hagan, Martin Doughty and Richard King matched Ben Husthwaite’s top score of 140 from yesterday, but Andy Moon finished the tougher Blue course on 70e.
Andy cursed himself for missing two of the three singles on the final stand of Blue, but took that frustration out on the Red course and smashed 73. He said after finishing the course: “It gives something for Mark [Winser, reigning champion] to chase tomorrow.”
But the day wasn’t over yet, as Martin Myers joined in the fun on one of the last rotations. His Blue course score of 73, missing two teal on stand seven, put the pressure on. He showed showing mental fortitude to lose just two clays throughout the rest of the layout.
A few more Juniors took to the course, but none managed to match Aaron Harvey’s score from Wednesday.
