The Lyme Regis club championship and handicap championship (Wellings Bowl) reached a thrilling finale at the weekend, writes Richard Jackman.

Junior captain, and defending champion, George Seed, was in pole position after a first round 67 net 66, so was leading both competitions.

His second 18 holes started steadily, and a birdie on the ninth set him up for the back nine where he recorded another five birdies to equal his first round score.

This phenominal feat also broke another record as his gross 10 under par 134, was the best score in the club’s history. It also meant that he won the handicap championship as well with a nett 132, and just to cap a wonderful day his handicap is now scratch. Congratulations George for all the hard work and dedication. David Lyon improved on his first round to finish second in the club championship while George Yorke and Steve Buxton were all square over both rounds with George just sneaking second place on countback in the Wellings Bowl

George Yorke again found himself in the winners’ seat this time scoring 38 points in the midweek stableford followed by Peter Sargent 37 points with Keith Gibson third with 36.
