Waites in control

The former Ryder Cup player Brian Waites shot a two-under-par 70 yesterday to claim a share of the lead on two-under 142 in the pounds 60,000 Northern Electric Seniors tournament at Slaley Hall, Northumberland. The 55-year- old Nottingham club professional produced superbly controlled golf over a difficult course. On the same score as Waites is the Australian Noel Ratcliffe.
