In the Lyme Regis seniors’ stableford, a reduced number played on the revised date, but there were still some good competitive scores, writes Richard Jackman.

In Division One, John Burden’s 37 points beat Richard Jackman on countback with Roy Moore third on 36.

In Division 2 the top score of the day went to Keith Chapell with 38 points while Richard Howe and David Hadwin just beat three others on 37 points to take the minor places.

Lyme ladies’ flew in the face of a bad forecast to play their Teague Foursomes. Rosie Jackman and Sheila Claringbold were the best of the eight drawn pairs who all now go on to the next round later in the year

Duncan Driver, Lyme Regis general manager, hosted a four-ball better-ball competition open to all members and their guests.

Despite the horrendous rain on Friday, excellent work by David Everett and his greens staff team, and a favourable overnight wind, nearly 200 people turned out to play in this event. Early leaders Jeremy Hill and Tim Vincent posted a seemingly unassailable score of 43 points to be at least three shots clear of anyone else until late starters Kieron Fowler and George Yorke came in with the winning score of 46 points - a truly incredible feat from both of them off three-quarters handicap!

This could be one of Kieron’s last amateur events as he prepares to launch himself into a career as a professional golfer. George Yorke’s father John, won a Scotty Cameron putter in the putting competition.

Grateful thanks were given to Duncan for hosting the event and he in turn thanked his team, ably assisted by club secretary Melissa McMahon and clubhouse manager Duncan Scott.
