Lyme Regis juniors David Lyon and Stuart Wight both won Dorset junior county competitions.

Lyon won the Henderson Trophy, with the final four rounds of matchplay golf played over two days. To reach the final Lyon had some convincing wins and in the final played a mixture of clever and steady golf, holding his nerve around ‘the Dudsbury Amen Corner’ to emerge the 3 and 2 winner, a worthy champion after some brilliant golf.

Despite being knocked out in the Henderson Trophy, Stuart Wight won the Keith Durbin Salver for the lowest aggregated gross score for three rounds during the stroke play phase of the Henderson Competition.

His 220 strokes over three rounds was six better than his second-placed rival.

In the April medal Adrian Morgan certainly didn’t fool around as he won Division One with a storming net 66, the best score of the day.

Simon Vincent and Ian Mudford, both with net 69, were second and third on countback.

Dave Jones (68) won Division Two from Jon Cullimore (69), who was one ahead of Rob Crabbe with 70

The midweek stableford saw a return to the podium for Stuart Wight (38pts), with John Jones coming second with 36 points, just ahead of Matthew Watson (35),

In the ladies’ Coronation Foursomes, Caroline Baker and Jane Dixon played exceptionally well to win with 38 points and go through to represent the club.

Gilly Madill and Rosie Jackman beat Cyndy Mudford and Lesley Jelleyman both with 33 points on countback.

In the Australian Spoons, the worthy winners were Corinne Jones and Kathy Briggs.
