Welsh International James Frazer (Pennard) produced the performance of a lifetime here at Southerndown today to win the Duncan Putter with a record score of 8 under par for the 72-hole tournament.

Not content with his superb 65 this morning he went and repeated the feat this afternoon - the first time any golfer has shot 10 under par at Southerndown in one day. Birdies at the 3rd and 6th holes set the tone for the round, and even a dropped shot at the 7th did not halt his progress.

He responded to this minor setback with consecutive birdies at the 8th, 9th and 10th holes, and a 'mere' par on the 11th proved only a temporary pause as James went on to birdie the 12th and 13th. Content with a job well done, he completed his round with a succession of pars to card his second 65 of the day, leaving him 4 shots clear of the field.

Among those trailing in his wake were Nuneaton golfer Andy Sullivan - in second place on 4 under par (276) - and former Duncan Putter winner Ben Westgate on one over.

The winner of the best Welsh Under-21 player was Rhys Pugh, who showed touches of his true ability in his final round of 68.
