The Lyme Regis men played for the Rover Cup on Sunday and Andy Richardson came in with a brilliant 42 points eclipsing Tony Warwick and Roger Seed into second and third places; both on 40 points, writes Richard Jackman.

In the seniors’ May stableford, Jim Rowlands-Rees scored a quite exceptional 40 points to win Division 1 by four and six points respectively from Peter Mayles and John Toates. Division 2 was much tighter, with the top three all on 34 points but on count back Colin Conn beat Bernie Porter and Keith Chappell. It was a good day for Roger Stokes who secured a hole in one on the 11th.

There were 144 players contesting the Lyme Ladies Open on Thursday so the home ladies spent the day supporting the competition.

The junior stableford on Saturday was won by James Phillips with 39 points from David Lyon 37, and Brad Burraston on 36.

The men’s May stableford produced some good results - top of the pile and winning division 1 was Todd Larcombe 41 points from Brian Rees 40 points and third was Bob Taylor, 39 points. Division 2 saw Mark Taylor’s 40 points win on count back from Martin Dixon with Mark Thirlwell third with 38 points.

Jamie Hughes, Lyme’s youngest green keeper, has recently qualified to level 3 - the accepted higher level in green keeping. His college were so impressed that they have recommended him to enter the student of the year competition. Good luck and well done Jamie and thanks to the club’s head green keeper David Everett, for the hours spent training Jamie and the team.

Birdies took on a slightly different meaning as “twitchers” were on high alert - a hoopoe was spotted on the pitch and putt course which also attracted the attention of Mke Dilger from the One Show!
