In the Lyme Regis junior stableford, Ben Prosser had a solid back nine to win, scoring 35 points from Mannie Wellman 31, and Cameron Moss 30, writes Richard Jackman.
In the Hardy A cup game, away against Weymouth, Lyme Regis fielded a largely young team which bloodied a few newcomers, but came up against a vastly experienced home side that used that experience and local knowledge to great effect.
Tom Glover and Bob Taylor were winners while George Seed gained a half point as Lyme went down five-and-a-half to two-and-a-half.
The men had a four-ball better ball competition and , coincidentally, for the second time, the two winning pairs played together and it was a birdie blitz! Arthur Daines, bridesmaid last time, partnered Dave Fidge, who was on fire, but father and son Ted and Mark Scott put up a tremendous fight. Seven-handicapper Dave Fidge was two under par gross and birdied both of the hardest holes on the course.
On the 16th, both he and Mark Scott hit their second shots so close it was a pair of very simple four point birdies.
You may also want to watch:
Playing the 18th, just the one point separated the teams, and all four players just missed their birdie putts, leaving Dave and Arthur as winners 48 points to 47.
The ladies greensomes’ produced an outright win for ladies vice-captain Susan Moore and Rosemary Shepherd as their exceptionally good front nine set them up with a score of 69.6.
