Cox and Vincent looking hard to beat in Axe Cliff Seniors’ Winter League

PUBLISHED: 21:11 10 December 2014

The latest round of the Axe Cliff seniors’ Winter League programme saw the defending champions pushing hard to retain their trophy.

On a super day for golf with course looking and playing well it gave everyone a chance to post a good score over the 15 holes and so it proved.

In third position were the outsiders Mike Jamieson and Mick Tomes with 35 points. One point in front of them were contenders Tony Strong and Dave Sammons with 36 points, but with a very creditable 37 points, were reigning champions Gilbert Cox and Alan Vincent.

It looks as though they will take some beating but with several rounds to go anything can yet happen.

As secretary, Mick Tomes said with some feeling, in his usual jovial manner, this competition is a marathon not a sprint. Watch this space to see how it develops.

Only one two was recorded and that was Tony Horton but the greatest thanks must go to the green keepers for producing an excellent course at this time of year.

The men’s section played round three of their Winter League and it proved to be a good day for the pairing of S Palmer and A Plamer who finished first with 47 points.

Second were Andrew Hellier and Anthony Hellier with 43 points and third place went to Mark Ward and Steve Reed with 42 points.

There were three twos recorded by Jin Hong, Chris Glover and Alex Palmer.

The ladies’ played a three-ball Texas Scramble stableford which was won by the threesome of Helen Kenworthy, Pauline Willis and Pat Ayshford.

Second were Glenda Board, Sandra Walker and Lesley Crawford with the trio of Caroline Bond, Bee Sammons and Jill Wellington finishing third.
