TWO pairs blew the field apart at Royston Golf Club on Sunday.

Their back nine finished with three straight birdies for 24 points, edging out Jason Nolan and Stuart Hunt.
Third place was also decided on countback with Gary Fortune and Alex Bridges pipping Colin Saban and Darren Dawson. Both pairs scored 41 points.
