Division triumph for Lee
4:30pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in Sport
REDUCED daylight hours meant a smaller entry than usual for The Worcestershire’s October medal.
The recent Ledbury Cup winners, Lee Whittall (8 handicap) and Tom Howells (5), finished first and second in Division One with nett 69 and 71 respectively.
Steve Bradshaw (8) took third place at the Malvern Wells course with 71.
In Division Two, Simon Clayson’s 74 off 14 handicap put him one ahead of Mike Day (16) and two ahead of Terry Goode (17).
First in Division Three was Peter Scott (18) with 68, well ahead of Mike Salmon (18) and Robert Jones (24), both on 76.
The last match play final of the year saw the mixed foursome between club captain, Jim Wilde, and his wife Di against Helen Thomas and Andrew Bird with the latter conceding two strokes.
The early holes were close with Thomas and Bird one up or level until the Wildes won the fifth and sixth to go one ahead, a lead they kept or improved until the 15th where the match was squared again.
Hole 16 was halved but the Wildes won the 17th and halved the last to win the Rose Bowls one up.
Steven Lane bagged the Erskine Cup for having the best gross score, a 66, in the four major medals.
Andy Dunster took the College Cup for the best nett aggregate over six rounds with 305.
In the ladies’ open pairs, Sam Long and Tracey Ward, of Droitwich, won with 37 points ahead of Wendy Bill and Sue Birch from Ladbrook Park and Kings Norton with 36.
Third on count-back from Thomas and Rita Gladwin (Cotswold Hills) were home players Cathy Harris and Alison Tuck with 33.
