The Axe Cliff seniors section played their Winter League third round on a very wet, but playable course, writes Peter Motson.
The winners were P Hornsby and J Hannah with 35 points with second place going to B Graham and C Walker (34).
It was close for third place with countback called into play after two pairings carded scores of 33 points. It ended with T Jessop and A Bishop edging out N Bowles and P Christmas.
Two players, Mick Swann and John Ashbolt, slipped and fell on the final two holes, but both completed their round, a little bruised and very muddy. Some blokes will do anything to get their name in the paper!
The ladies section played their Daily Mail foursomes and the winners, Helen Kenworthy and Glenda Board who are now through to a ‘knockout’ competition.
Margaret Kenchington and Jill Wellington were the runners up.
The ladies also played a three-ball bowmaker competition with the two best scores to count. First were Glenda Board, Margaret Kenchington and Bee Sammons and second were Pat Ayshford, Pauline Willis and Alison Cook. A very nice buffet was laid on by the winners to celebrate some coinciding birthdays and which, was much enjoyed by all.
The men’s section played the Tradesman Mans Cup, foursomes. This was played as medal format and the winning pair with a nett 72.5 were Richard Gibbons and Steve Anning.
Second placed went to Andy Trivett and Nigel Prichard with a nett 73. Three twos were recorded, by Gibbons and Anning, Trivett and Prichard and, Paul Curtin and Jerry Real.
