The annual Junior Championship was all set for close competition with a good sized field of Juniors. Greg Matthews was the eventual Junior Champion with a steady 76. The result of the day, however, was from 12-year-old George Seed, who has been in blistering form and is really becoming a very competent and well-rounded player.George recently had a Taylormade driver fitted for him at one of the demo days pro Duncan Driver holds at Lyme and this has improved his game.George won the Handicap Championship with a 82 nett 64! His round included a birdie 3 at the 377 yard par 4 17th. All his hard work and practice is paying off.l The club's Hardy B team has had some mixed fortune this season but have kept themselves in the chase, with a finely tuned win against Queens Park, when they didn't lose a match , winning 4 1/2 - 1/2. Well done, guys keep up the good work.l It was a family affair on Sunday morning as Steve and Mark Thirwell won the Foursomes Competition, with an impressive 42 points.One shot back was the formidable team of this year's Junior Handicap champion George Seed and the ever-improving George Yorke with 41. A few missed putts on the way in cost them the top spot! Finishing up the top three was the strong pairing of Dave Lock and W G J White with a 41.
