In a week of celestial happenings there were some stellar performances from several Lyme Regis players, writes Richard Jackman.

Andy West and Dave Chambers have been playing some brilliant golf recently, so it was no surprise that both shone in the seniors’ Gordon Putter medal competition.

West’s round of 11 pars and two birdies was testimony to just how well he performed coming in with a nett 64.

On most other days Chambers’ nett 66 would have won him gold, but despite an eagle and two birdies he just missed out on a couple of holes, but had the consolation of also seeing his handicap reduced for exceptional scoring.

Meanwhile a more down to earth performance from John Toates, nett 69, earnt him a worthy third place. In the ladies’ Vi Crow stableford, another star in waiting, Sarah Kilcoyne, came good and won with 45 points, scoring a shimmering front 9 of 25 points and overall, in an excellent display, took four and three points a hole on several occasions.

As a relative newcomer to golf, Kilcoyne’s handicap is heading down. Ladies captain Susan Moore had a good steady accumulation of points as she finished second on 39, eclipsing Jenny Scott who needed countback to secure an impressive third place finish on 37 points.

Sue Jupp won the 9 hole Parnee cup with a well-worked 18 points. One other point of note was the hole in one by Judith Ellard on the eighth hole.

In the Knighton Heath knock out competition, Lyme Regis won their match against Weymouth 9 -1 to progress to the semi-finals .

Although not a club competition Flamingo Pool used Lyme Regis to host its charity day, and obviously using local knowledge well, the Lyme team of Roger Seed, Roddy Donaghy and Neil Smith, scored 90 points in their two out of three to count, quite some score, but the overall winner was the Flamingo Pool charity.
