Wet and windy conditions failed to dampen the enthusiasm of Mytton Fold Golf Club’s hardy member when they played in their Lady Captain’s Day competition.
Early morning high winds were joined by heavy precipitation for later players, making conditions less than ideal.
Despite this, Judith Kay beat off Allison Nuttall for the win following a card play-off after both carded 33 points.
Third was Linda Clegg, followed by Pauline White, Hazel Sellars, Lady Captain Doreen Hammond and Lady Captain-elect Carole Maher.
Sean Davies took the spot prize for the straightest drive on the 15th, Carole Maher was nearest the pin on the ninth, and Hazel Sellars was nearest the pond on the fourth!
In the men’s section, Steve Brooks showed the field home with, given the weather, an excellent 36 points.
Second was Garry Davies with 34 points, just holding off Wayne Ivinson on a card play-off.
Behind that duo, John Parkinson headed Andrew Palfrey, Gary Aldred, Nigel Fairhurst and Dave Clegg, all having scored 32 points.
Steve Brooks took home one of the spot prizes when he was nearest the pin in two at the second, while Ray Standring hit the longest drive at the 16th.
In-form Gary Aldred mastered more shocking weather conditions on Saturday to take the Founder’s Day competition with an excellent 91-17-74.
The weather started wet and got wetter until 1-30 p.m., when the dry weather brought out the sun, and club treasurer Frank Tunstall’s 86-12-74 wasn’t quite enough following a card play-off in the clubhouse.
Third was John Parkinson, who has been knocking on the door in recent weeks. He tried the knocker and the doorbell nuit just fell short, with his 87-12-75 one shy of the win.
Jim Bridge remembered his coat and was fourth with 100-24-76, ahead of Robert Atkinson, Steve Korab and Neiol Osliffe, who all shared nett 77s.
For the ladies, it was another win for Hazel Sellars, whose 116-36-80 was good enough for the win, and to extend her lead in the ladies’ Order of Merit.
Just behind was Allison Nuttall, with Lady Captain Doreen Hammond third.
With just one ‘two’ and a carry forward from last week, Gary Aldred’s birdie at the ninth meant he scooped the whole pot.
Mytton Fold will be having their annual barbeque on Sunday, June 2nd, from 4 p.m., folllowing the Jubilee Cup competition.
Tickets will be £5 per head or £15 for a family of four, as last year.
