NO STOPPING PITT

Worthy winner at Lyme Regis GC...

THE LYME Regis Golf Club’s seniors’ June stableford produced a worthy winner in Division One as Stephen Pitt struck the ball cleanly and surely, especially for a birdie four pointer on the second hole to secure 39 points.

Les Bounds is on a good run of form and this continued as he scored 38 to come 2nd while Brian Clark recovered from a poor start to come in third with 37.

A score of 37 secured Division Two for Graham Pickard as he too steadied himself after a slightly erratic firstt few holes finishing with a good burst of nett pars to take top spot from Jack Hansen and Keith Chapell who both put in vintage performances to tie on 35 but Hansen’s superior back nine saw him clinch 2nd place.

The Knighton Heath team found themselves with a tricky away fixture at The Dorset Golf Resort (East Dorset Golf & Country Club) as Rob Clapp took his shuffled team away. The results of each match ebbed and flowed, but wins from Bob Taylor, John Coley, Charles Vane Percy, Ted Scott and Malcolm Wilson ensured five wins in  5-5 final scoreline, but an away draw counts as a win so the side march on to the quarter finals.
