The Lyme Regis September medal produced some exceptional scoring in both divisions, writes Richard Jackman.

Division One saw Matt Rose claim top spot with a competent, polished display of consistent golf as he birdied three holes on his way to a nett 62, nine better than par.

On most other days, Matt Brotherton would have taken gold as he equalled par on the last four holes, including the tricky 15th and 16th to come in with a 66, with Simon Brown picking up third place with an impressive three-under 68.

In Division Two Ben Prosser equalled the best score of the day as took the front nine by storm, scoring gross birdies on the second and ninth hole as he made his way to a brilliant nett 62. Having promised a good score for some time Bob Shepherd delivered in style as he ate up the back nine with a fluent nett 29 to finish on 63, while John Perryman’s birdie two on 13 was a highlight of his four under par 67.

The midweek stableford was won by James Phillips as he scored 20 on each nine to win by an impressive margin from in-form Keith Gibson and Ben Prosser, both on 37 points.

Anne Humphreys and Jane Andrews had a close competition for first place in the September medal, Division One, as both were just one over par, on nett 74.

Humphreys took gold because of a superior back nine which included a well taken birdie on the 14th, to push Andrews into silver, with Ros Cox only a shot behind in third after a scintillating front nine.

Division Two, belonged to up and coming newcomer Judith Ellard as she realised her potential, shooting the best score of the day – nett 69, as she started the round like an express train, going four under on the front nine, to earn a well deserved handicap cut. Debbie Shinners finished second n on 73 as she too came out of the blocks quickly on the front nine the highlight being a gross birdie on the fourth hole.

Marilyn Wilson’s well-grafted back nine earnt her third place with a nett 74. The ladies also played in the Parham Cup, for winners of medals during the previous year, and this time Jane Andrews was out on her own, winning by five clear shots to win this prestigious trophy, from Amy Mudford and Sarah Kilcoyne.

In the ladies nine-hole competition Gen Hallett just beat new player Karen Buchanan-Harlow on countback, while another new player – Mira Conn, came third.
