GLYNIS Preshaw notched 22 points to see success in the nine-hole competition as Gareth Williams, club captain, held his captain’s day at Lyme Regis Golf Club.

Ian Harrison came second with 20 with Ann Broome third with 19. All three achieved a well-deserved handicap reduction, while Archie Trott won the junior nine-hole competition.

For the ladies, captain Kathy Briggs had an excellent front nine to win with 36 points with Amy Mudford second on 34 and Jane Andrews third on 33.

Division One of the men’s competition was a tight affair with the top three all finishing on 37 points but on countback, Bob Edmunds, Adrian Morgan and James Phillips finished first, second and third respectively.

With the best score of the day, Division Two’s Neil Smith (41) won the captain’s prize, beating Patrick Finnemore (40) and Lee Hill (37).

In Division One, Stephen Pitt’s 38 topped Peter Spiers’ 37, with Paul Liston (35) third in the Stableford. John Cleal took Division Two honours with 37, while young Samuel Beviss maintained his podium positioning with 36, just ahead of Ian Drake on countback.

Lyme Regis’ scratch team also faced a strong Barton-on-Sea team in the quarter-finals of the Stokes Salver.

Home advantage and bouncy conditions clearly helped and, after the morning foursomes, Lyme held a strong lead of 3-1 with an impressive point coming from the new pairing of Matt Watson and Mike Mudford.

In the afternoon singles, the team pressed home their advantage with solid wins from Ian Mudford, Stuart Wight, James Souter-Philips, Matt Watson and the team stalwart David Fidge.

The performance of the day came from Steve Mudford who, with defeat looming large, completed the last five holes in six under par to win one up.

Lyme now face a semi-final against Ashley Wood Golf Club.
