Stand in Lock wins for Lyme
Seniors’ success at Lanhydrock
Congratulations to David Lock, Lyme Regis GC, for winning the SWCGA Seniors’ Championship on a hilly Lanhydrock course.
David was not planning to play, as he was recovering from a knee injury, but, the hero he is, stood in at the last minute for John Nash who was taken ill at the Kent match and is still recovering.
David had a steady 74 on the first day and a real shaky start to his second, but all he was interested in was ensuring he kept a respectable card for the team competition. His 71 and 145 total was enough to tie the lead with Gloucestershire’s David Potter who scored a 71 and 74, so it was down to a play off.
On the first a great sand save was enough to give David the title. As can be seen in the photo, where he is receiving his well earned trophy, David was still in total shock at his achievement! Well Done David!
