The weather was perfect. The course was wet after overnight rain, but playing well for those who were hitting straight and the overall scores reflected these conditions.

Unluckily for Gerry Turner, playing off 12, his magnificent net 68 only gained him third position as Nick Povey (19), who is playing very well at the moment, pipped him with a net 66.

But even he was outdone by the reliable Peter Knighting (16) who also scored 66 and won on the countback ruling. Handicap secretary please note!

The ever-present duo of Tony Strong and Alan Vincent had to be content this time with the reward of the only twos of the day. For the rest of us it is back to the practice ground to try and eliminate those high scoring holes which seem to bug our game when it comes to medal competitions but assured in the knowledge that our handicaps haven’t changed for our next excursion onto the fairways of Axe Cliff, whereas the winners today ......!
