THERE were 101 entries for the golf week stableford at Lyme Regis Golf Club.
The week started with the course in excellent condition but with the pins in challenging places.
Tim Daniel began his round in steady fashion, but really picked up the pace scoring 21 points on the back nine, which included 15 points on five holes as he won with 37 points. Jason Lindley, playing very well, ran him very close also equalling his score, and also on the back nine, but just lost out on countback. Neal Cullen joined the other single figure winners finishing in third place including a handsome eagle on the 15th hole.
The ladies’ midweek stableford saw a magnificent win for Di Harris as she played some wonderful golf to card 40 points, while Ronny Turner and Julie Duke battled it out, both bettering par with 37 points, as Turner won on countback.
The men’s competition saw Stuart Scott win Division One as he played some brilliant holes in his 39 points, highlight of which was a four-point birdie on 5. Matt Watson finished second with his brand of aggressive golf in a competitive 37 points, while a mature 36 points from Pete Sargent secured third spot with 36 points.
Division Two winner with the best score of the day was Alan Watson as he punched above his weight to achieve a sensible 40 points, just one ahead of James Turner who also played excellently to score 39, while Joseph Thirlwell just finished 3rd on 38 points. However perhaps the star of the week was Alice Hines who adminstered all the golf competitions during the week and at the golf week quiz night enjoyed a rousing happy birthday from all competitors as she celebrated her birthday.
