CHRIS Brice and Craig McGown won the Andrew Black 4BBB with an impressive score of 45 points at Lyme Regis Golf Club.

Their round included three gross birdies as they piled on the points especially on the back nine of 24 points, to win by two clear points.

David Lock and Nick Northey returned a brilliant back nine that included a nett birdie and gross eagle on two consecutive holes to earn second place on countback ahead of Paul Courts and Tony Harley who had two much steadier halves also on 43 points.

The first mixed midweek stableford saw an excellent win for Mark Lewis as he was one over gross par on each nine, starting both nines with a bogey. Apart from that, he played flawless golf as he won with 42 points.

Lewis’ round overshadowed Alan Hill’s more erratic performance, but despite some poor holes, stalwart scores on the back nine, including two nett birdies, gained him second spot on 39, while Paul Courts was again on the leaderboard in third with 36.

The ladies also played their Andrew Black 4BBB and there were two scores of 40 points.

Debbie Shinners and Kate Helm had the better back nine so won on countback, with 15 points in the last six holes including a brilliant four-pointer on the tricky 16th.

Corinne Jones and Judith Ellard had a very promising front nine scoring 22 points with some good complimentary golf, but a couple of poor holes on the back nine just cost them gold.

Cyndy Mudford and Geraldine Wickes also sparkled on the front nine with 22 points, ending up with 38 to finish third.

Meanwhile, Lyme’s seniors’ section hosted a successful Jurassic Challenge competition as 13 different clubs with teams of eight competed in a team fourball better ball competition, well won by the team from East Devon, as all four pairs came in with more than 40 points.
