Cameron Moss played some wonderful, steady golf to card a brilliant nett 65 and win the Lyme Regis Golf Club junior championship with George Seed and Matt Watson both nett 69 taking second and third places respectively, writes Richard Jackman.
It was good to see a full field of competitors from all sections of the club for the new captain’s drive in competition where the taking part, was, for many, more important than the result. After the competition departing captains Roger and George Seed, and Rosie Jackman all sunk tricky putts to make way for the new captains’ drive in. New club captain John Coley, ladies captain Caroline Baker and junior captain Brad Searle all struck good drives to start off their year, watched by an enthusiastic and supportive crowd. John summed it up by saying: “To be captain at this great club is an equally great honour. In our respective functions we shall all do our utmost to represent the club and the members to the best of our ability.”
This year both John and Caroline’s charities will be jointly shared between SUDEP Action and Muir Maxwell Trust.
The seniors’ Briggs Trophy bogey competition was well won by Nigel Adnams with plus three followed by Alastair Purcell, plus two and Alex Preshaw, level, emerging third on countback.
The ladies stableford produced keen competition in Division One as Di Smith just pipped Judith Williams on countback, both with 34 points and Jane Dixon’s 33 saw her into third spot.
In Division Two, and, with the best score of the day, Sarah Hampton-Rumbold continued her fine run to win with 37 points from Lizzie Linnert 33 and Elaine Colman 32.
