TEXAS came to Langho at the weekend when Mytton Fold Golf Club held their Three-person Texas Scramble.

The rain abated for the 10-30 a.m. shotgun start - how appropriate! - as a full field set out on the drying course.

After playing the 16-hole winter course, the round up showed bandits Jean Van Boeckel, Dave Wilson and Danny Heald (52.82) heading the field just ahead of desperados Dave Halsall, Wayne Ivinson and Peter Kiddie.

Rustlers Steve Rusyn, Tony Cross and Damian Fox took third, just pipping the first mixed trio of Jean Davies, Tony Wilson and John Welch.

The Winter Series for the ladies has come to a close with Lady Captain Patricia Leyland winning the singles title, while Past Lady Captain Jean Havard and Helen Johnson took the doubles title.

• THE first Monthly Medal of the year was played at Stonyhurst Park Golf Club. The winner was Geoff Pallister with a 87-20-67.

Second, on a card play off, was Captain Ray Robinson with a net 70, with third place going to Jim Walker.
