In the first turkey trot stableford Paul Hampton knocked the stuffing out of the opposition with 42 points, writes Richard Jackman.

It left Gareth Williams, 40 points, in second and Simon Brown third with 39 points.

On Monday the seniors Ted Ray Putter stableford competition was won by Tony Slater scoring a masterful 40 points and count back decided that Roger Baker would take second from Roy Moore, both carding 38 points.

On Thursday the very windy conditions reduced the ladies competition to nine holes, and in Division One Wickes (17 points), Jenny Scott (16 points) and Di Smith (15 points) were the top three.

The clear winner in Division Two was Pat Deane with 14 points from Susan Moore and Ronnie Turner, who both had 13 points.

Club pro Duncan Driver has the recognition of being a candidate as the Foremost professional of the year in an unprecedented feat of being nominated for the second year running, a testimony to all the hard work he does for members and juniors at Lyme.
