THE seniors’ August stableford at Lyme Regis Golf Club produced a string of brilliant scores.
In Division 1 if your points didn’t begin with a 4 you weren’t in the prizes!
Earning top spot was Stephen Pitt as his 41 points was built on several four point-a-hole scores, as he finished the back nine in great style easing to 41 points in total.
Jim Rowlands-Rees and Nick Franks both had excellent front nines with 21 apiece and the same good score of 19 on the back nine so it was down to a close countback where Rowlands-Rees emerged to take second place.
Division 2 produced a spectacularly brilliant round of golf from Ken Lavery as he went on a nett birdie spree, taking three points on eight of the holes and a four-pointer on one to come in with the best score of the day of 45 points.
Steve Harlow has been on good form recently and after a modest start he stormed through the back nine scoring 24 points to lift his total to 41 and second place while Mike List finished third on 36 with a steady round highlighted by a birdie two on the eighth.
There was keen competition in the midweek stableford as Tony Harley put together a string of high scoring holes to finish top of the pile on 41 points while Brian Collis pulled together some good scores on tricky holes to finish second on 40 points, as Matt Rose steadied himself on the back nine to finish third on 39 points.
