Pember pipped by a wet Wake in Axe Cliff seniors’ January Medal competition.
For the Axe Cliff seniors’ January Medal the conditions were mainly dry, writes Janet Dack.
However, the elements did throw up squally rain and heavier rain came in to catch the final three amongst whom was the eventual winner.
Sid Pember (20) had been leading with an excellent 69 nett before a wet Geoff Wake (14) pipped him at the post with the same score, but winning on countback.
In third place, two shots behind with a 71 nett was Peter Knighting (16).
Three twos were recorded by Pember, Knighting and Tony Strong.
