LYME Regis Ladies played their flag competition – a format where players start their round of golf with an allocation of shots, usually par plus their handicap, and play until that shot allocation runs out, placing a flag or marker indicating how far into the course they went.
On the 16- hole layout, Ronny Turner putted her last shot on the last hole to see it run agonisingly past. Jane Dixon had played some consistent golf, mastering the conditions very well and had already secured the putt, so won by the narrowest of margins.
Back on the 18-hole layout the men played a four-ball better ball competition and but for a point, Phil Webb could have had a hat-trick of victories.
However it was club captain Lee Caddy and partner Graham Paterson who stole the show accumulating a good 42 points, playing especially well on the back nine to push Nathan Turner and Steve Kitcher into second place but only on countback, also on 42 points. Webb and partner Steve Piper took third place with a creditable 41 points.
