Lyme Regis May Medal joy for Adrian Morgan
- Credit: Archant
After a somewhat torrid time the previous week, Adrian Morgan really upped his game to come in with the best score of the day, a nett 69, to win Division One of the Lyme Regis May Medal, writes Richard Jackman.
Morgan played sublimely, with birdies on three of the last four holes, as well as the first and 10th to secure a well-earned win.
James Newcombe and Peter Beviss both scored nett 70, and despite having a bit of a scare on the fourth hole Newcombe secured second place on countback, with a very solid back nine, despite the persistent efforts of Beviss to catch him.
In Division Two it was also tight as the top two tied on nett 70. Winner on countback was Terry Peadon, who sprinkled in a couple of birdies on the front nine as he secured top spot.
Young Zac Mudford was left to regret a couple of sevens on his card, but otherwise played some very good golf, but just lost out on countback, but he is improving steadily and it won’t be long before gold is his.

Club captain Lee Caddy had a brilliant front nine, but just fell away on the final half, but still secured third spot. The midweek stableford competition is beginning to take off and on this occasion Colin Baker wore the winner’s jersey as his 37 points with good all-round golf pushed Graham Paterson into second place on 34.
Lyme ladies demonstrated a good team effort as they hosted their popular ladies’ open competition.
