Golf in brief: Larratt to the fore in pro-am
Bob Larratt shot level-par 70 in a Northamptonshire PGA winter series pro-am at Northants County, when there was a field of 28 teams on a bitterly cold day.
He was in a four-way tie for third, one behind joint-winners Shane Rose (Cold Ashby) and Nick Soto (Northampton).
Kibworth's Larratt, a former European Senior Tour regular, was a member of Northants County as an amateur.
Bryn Morris competed in the Northamptonshire PGA overseas pro-am in Portugal and finished third in the individual awards after his 302 total.
