B Caiello & Lewer Perfect in LGP3!!

Seventeen players battled in the third round of the Lowry Grand Prix as the series reached the halfway point.

Ben Caiello (2031) rolled through the Open Section taking clear first with perfect 3-0 score claiming the maximum 15 points for the round and making a big move towards the top of the standings going from 15th to 3rd.. Ian Morton (1943) took clear second with 2 points as Randy Mosteller (1850) & Steve Boshears (1712) tied for third at 1.5.

The Amateur Section (U1505) & the LGP Series continued to be dominated by Josh Lewer (1487) as he took clear first, scored the maximum 15 points for the second straight round and ran his winning streak in the LGP to a perfect 9-0! Josh's commanding lead in the standings will be tested since he should bump up to the Open Section in Round 4. David Boyd (1456) & Mike Mayfield (1375) tied for second with 2.5.
