Club Stableford
Saturday’s Men’s competition was won by Mark Hartley-Norton with a fantastic 41pts. This was good enough to win overall and beat Roy James by a single point for the Division One prize. Wayne Taylor came in third place with 39pts. Division Two also showed some great scores with committee member, Hilary Weatherley, winning with 40pts – beating David Hough on count back. Paul Williams came in 3rd place with 39pts.

The day saw thirty 2’s recorded – showing that a lot of good golf shots were being executed – however, Paul Kortland went one better with a hole in one. Congratulations, Paul!

Taunton and Pickeridge Pro Am
Last week, ‘Yours Truly’ returned to Taunton and Pickeridge Golf Club for their annual Pro Am. In testing conditions, I am pleased to report that I gained second place – showing that there is still life in the ‘old dog’!
