It was a good scoring day in the July medal and Coronation Cup as the top three in both divisions all broke par, writes Richard Jackman.

Division One winner, with a wonderful net 67, was Craig McGown with George Skellern, 69, and Neal Cullen, 70 in second and third respectively.

Division Two saw an exceptional score of net 65 from Luke De Pasquale, the best score of the day and that elevated him into division one.

Second and third spot went to Mark Lewis, 68, and John Cleal, 70.

The Lyme Regis ladies played their club championship, and the Turner Denham Bowl (scratch) was won very convincingly by Melissa McMahon with gross 154 from Anne Humphreys.

In the Wellings Salver (handicap) Hanna Jacobsen, with a superb net 144 beat Kate Smith.

The Morning Cup was won by Karen Nicholson who struck a stunning net 67 to pip Hanna Jacobsen and for the most improved morning to afternoon round, Anne Humphreys won the Scott Trophy.

The midweek stableford saw Mike Mudford overcome the conditions to beat Matt Watson on countback, with 33 points with Jon Ebdon third on 31.

In the junior stableford, club champion George Seed, secured an excellent 39 points to win over David Lyon 35, and Stuart Wight 27. Lyme’s Hardy A team scored a convincing cup win against Moors Valley to go through to the semi finals and the previous day the Hardy B side managed a 5-0 win, also against Moors Valley

Erratum:- In last week’s article I reported that George Seed had won with a record breaking 10 better than par score over two rounds which should have read eight, still a club record though!
