Only one competitor, the ultimate winner, Tony Strong (9) with 34 points showed it could be done.

Three players tied on 31 points and with places decided on countback, the runner-up was Dave Weston (19), third was John White (21). Sid Pember (20) was the unlucky player to miss out.

The stableford round was in aid of captain Rob Groves’s, charity - The British Heart Foundation - and the raffle raised £75.

There were four twos from John Pugh, John White, Tony Strong and Dave Weston In their first friendly match of the season Axe Cliff Seniors beat Windwhistle six matches to nil, as always these matches are played in good humour and the clubhouse buzzed with the banter, we are really looking forward to the rest of our matches, well done chaps - Long Sutton next.
