The Lyme Regis July stableford was played in ideal conditions as our brief summer finally arrived, writes Richard Jackman.
Tom Glover took full advantage of the conditions, blitzing the front nine to finish three under gross and so won Division One with 41 points.
Andrew Dawe’s 39 points secured him the runners-up spot and David Lyon came third with 37.
Division Two belonged to Ian McGown with a solid, steady 39 points, while Simon Leech’s more consistent play just pipped the ever-improving Steve Piper on countback, both scoring 37.
The Lyme Regis seniors played the Gordon Putter medal competition and it could not have been tighter as the top four all came in with a nett 71.

That meant countback being called into play and it resulted in Jim Kerr taking the trophy. Roger Turner was second and David Binns third.
The ladies played the Ping 4-ball better ball competition and Di Smith and Rosie Jackman will wait and see if their winning 44 points is good enough to go forward to the national finals in Lincolnshire later in the year.
