In the Lyme Regis monthly stableford 15 hole format, Richard Jackman made best use of the reduced field, scoring 33 points, while George Yorke took second place on 32 points from George Seed with 31.
The Lyme Regis seniors’ section held their inaugral Jurassic Challenge four-ball, better ball, competition.
Twelve teams of eight players competed, arriving early for a shotgun start. Overnight rain meant the course was only open on the 15-hole layout, so, with some last minute changes, 96 players adapted to the conditions well.
The winning team who walked off with the special trophy came from Honiton with 127 points, beating Came Down into second place, two points behind, with Long Sutton B finishing third on 120.
Lyme Regis B finished fourth and the side came seventh. The winning pair of John Moore and John O’Hara from Came Down beat Mick Capps and Malcolm Denness from Long Sutton on a nail biting countback, both scoring 35 points. Brian Carnell and Paul Millard were the best of the Lyme players, finishing sixth with 33 points. Congratulations, go to the band of Lyme seniors and ladies who also braved the weather to help make this new event a huge success. Lyme ladies fell foul of the conditions on Thursday for their competition, but are gearing up for the traditional opening match against the seniors on Tuesday.
