The Lyme Regis December medal saw a very tight finish in Division One, writes Richard Jackman.
It was Andrew Dawe, with a level gross score on the back nine, who took the honours which included an eagle on the tricky 15th hole.
Second on countback, after a brilliant front nine was the ever-improving Tristan Wakeley, also with a nett 69, while three-handicapper Jonathan Ebdon recovered from three bogey holes in a row to come in one under nett par and finish third.
The best score of the day was carded by Division Two winner Steve Thirwell, who won by five shots thanks to a blistering front nine that left him going on the score an impressive nett 65.
Often on the leaderboard, Sunday was no exception for Nic Snape, who had a better back nine to just push Steve Kitcher into third place after the latter had two steady nines.
Meanwhile, the Lyme Regis seniors’ December stableford was played with some different tee and green placings, owing to the bunker work, which tested the players.
With the best score of the day, it was Charles Vane Percy who coped best with the conditions scoring a brilliant 43 points which included an eagle on the 14th.
Robert Horne had an impressive front nine score of 23 points in his 40 points in second place while, in third place, Brian Carnell really upped his game on the back nine to finish with 37.
Division Two belonged to Mike List as he scored no fewer than four three-pointers on the back nine to finish strongly on 40 points.
Roger Baker and Steve Harlow both had four-point holes in their 38 points, but on countback, it was Baker that took a well-earned silver.
