The Lyme Regis seniors first medal of the season produced a good field and many good scores as they played for the Marsh Tankard, writes Richard Jackman.
There was one excellent score from Julian Cox as he played some steady reliable golf to come first with with a net 67.
Second, third and fourth places all went to under par scored with 70 and so countback was used to determine the minor placings.
Keith Gibson took second, Jack Hansen was third and Colin Preece had to settle for fourth.
The midweek stableford increases in popularity, and this week Kevin Payne’s score of 38 points was good enough to take first from David Fidge 37 and John Yorke 36.

In the ladies stableford and McMillan Spoon, ladies’ captain Gilly Madill had a blistering front nine which included an eagle, for five points on the par five seventh hole and finished on 36 points to take the honours in Division One, while Rosie Jackman just pipped Diane Harris on countback as both finished on 35 points.
Star of the day though, was Linda Deem who ran away with Division Two, scoring freely and well throughout her round to end with the highest score of the day, 42 points.
