THE monthly medal at Lyme Regis Golf Club produced some excellent scores, particularly in Division 1 where Adrian Morgan produced the best round of the day which produced three gross birdies on the front nine in his nett 66, to take first place.
Young Zac Mudford applied pressure on his back nine scoring two gross birdies as he finished second on countback from Chris Brice whose front nine was outstanding, both scoring nett 67.
Division 2 was won by Lee Caddy as he lapped up the par 3s in 2 under gross on them, finishing with a nett 68. Samuel Beviss continued has steady improvement with 2 solid nines in his nett 69 while Malcolm Wilson held his nerve with a gross birdie on 17 to finish third on 70.
The seniors’ stableford saw John Toates in pole position with a variation of scores per hole but overall a winning total of 38 points while Rob Hall and Peter Wood were level on 37 points, but Wood was left regretting a blob on the back nine, allowing Hall to take silver on countback.
Kim Jeffery had the best score of the day, after a bit of a wobbly start he scored 26 points in 10 holes to finish on 41 to win Division 2. Bernie Styles and Derek Lusted finished on 39 points as both had excellent front nines, but on a close countback Styles just edged 2nd place. The junior nine hole competition saw Jevan Hampton-Rumbold win with 18 points from Joe Shrubb (16) and Brooklyn Wilkins (15).
Zac Mudford had a brilliant week and improved on his weekend performance by storming round the course to comfortably win the midweek stableford scoring a wonderful 42 points, five better than James Wilson, who finished second with 37 while David Clifford took third on 33.
The ladies stableford was keenly contested especially in Division 1 where Jane Dixon and Anne Humphreys both scored excellently on the front nine with 22 well earned points.
Dixon was almost left rueing a blob on the 11th but stormed through with a late surge to win on countback as both scored 39 points. Judith Williams had a bit of a varied round but still scored strongly to have another podium finish third on 37 points.
In Division 2 Amy Mudford rounded off a good family week by taking top spot with 39 points, despite a disappointing performance midway through the front nine, recovered brilliantly to finish in top spot. Sue Crossley kept her game together well to finish second on 37 while Judith Ellard recovered on the back nine to take third on 35.
Maggie Brook just beat Mary Golding on countback to take 1st place in the 9 hole competition, both with 16 points with Linda Baker 3rd on 13.
