Saunton Golf Club are into the second round of the Devon Palairet Trophy after a 5-0 win over Sparkwell at Holsworthy Golf Club.

The one-sided scoreline perhaps didn't do Sparkwell any justice after a series of closely-fought contests.

The first match of the day saw Jamie Pow and Jason Palmer close out on a 19th hole to give Saunton the lead. The duo were two up and in good shape before the Sparkwell pair drew the match level on the 16th green.

Will Hunt and Keir Begley put in a composed performance to extend the lead. Going into the seventh tee two down, the pair put together some tidy play, making 12 straight pars to win two up.

Brian Medlam and Graham Virgin were quick off the blocks, going four up through eight holes. Sparkwell fought back but were not able to draw level, with Saunton running out 2&1 winners.

Phil Venn and Ross Hunter ran our 3&2 winners after going on a run of eight pars in nine holes.

The final match saw Shaun Thorne and Steve Sparkes earn a comfortable 8&6 victory.
