THE Coronation Cup was open to everyone at Lyme Regis Golf Club producing some exceptionally good scores.

The best of these was Stuart ‘Ted’ Scott who romped round the course scoring many pars and three gross birdies as he finished the round in style with one of the birdies to finish on nett 64.

The next 12 players all broke par, with Stephen Pitt and Graham Pickard both on nett 67, but it was the former who had a wonderful back nine finishing with two gross birdies on the last two holes to take second place, while Pickard picked up a very worthy third.

The midweek Stableford saw James Phillips return to the podium with a scintillating round of golf as he levelled gross par on the front nine to take top spot with 40 points, while James Wilson was only a point behind on 39 despite two blobs, with club captain Gareth Williams upping his game on the back nine to take third on 37.
