A LOW-SCORING day saw Anne Weaver and Tony East victorious in the mixed American greensome Cliffe Lockwood Trophy last week.
A number of pairs came in with scores well under 70 net, but the day belonged to Weaver and East, who played beautifully to bring in a superb score of 64.5 net off their combined handicap of 13.5.
Weaver said: “We probably only missed a couple of chips and putts throughout, it was one of those days when everything went right.”
They dropped just one shot on the front nine, birdied the fourth hole and taking a total of 36 shots, already five shots under handicap, before a steady back nine of 42 shots ensured their victory.
Surya and Terence Dickinson were runners-up with 66.5, another impressive score off their 26.5 handicap as they scored a gross 45 (net 32) on the front nine and 48 (35) on the back nine.
Rachel Robinson had quite a tussle against Duncan Renshaw in the final of the Jones Cup, the knockout match play competition for ladies and gentlemen with handicaps of 19 and above.
In a very close encounter, Robinson won on the 18th hole.
The Sunday Medal Five brought a win and a handicap reduction for Anne Colwell, who scored a net 72 off her 18 handicap, ahead of Weaver with a net 73 and Jill Bainbridge with a net 76.
In the Thursday Medal, Surya Dickinson recorded a net 73 to bring her handicap down two shots to 34.
Second was newcomer Sue Green with a net 81, pushing Chrissie Purrett into third place on countback.
Anne Bourne continued her recent good form in September’s first competition, the Sunday Stableford Five.
The breezy conditions made for testing golf and Bourne scored 33 points, winning on countback from Pat Weetman.
