The annual Woodbury Park Ladies Open was held last week, writes John Bridgman.
There were 129 ladies, from 19 different clubs from around the south west, all playing as a team and combining an individual competition.
The day is always generously sponsored by Bradleys Estate Agents and the Bradley Cup was presented by Lyndon Bent to the overall winner, Ellen Norton of Woodbury Park.
Last weekend, the Badger Bowl competition was held combining the Order of Merit (part IV) being played for by both men and women.
The overall placings saw John Anderson win scoring a nett 66. Second was Robert Lake on 68 with Daniel Titball third on 70.
In terms of the divisional places; Division One was won by John Anderson with 66 and second on 68 was Robert Lake. John Mills was third, scoring nett 70.
In Division Two there was a win for Michael Delahaye, nett 70. JP Rowland took second spot with 71 and a better back nine from, in third, Derrick Sullivan, also scoring 71. Division Three had Daniel Titball in first place scoring 70. Second place went to Raymond Phare with 71 and third was James Hill with a nett 76.
The ladies overall winner was Jill Williams with a nett 69 from, in second place, Jan Morrison on 74. Third place went to Julie Browne.
The Silver Division saw a win for Jan Morrison on 74. Ann Hazelwood was second with 75 and, in third place, was Bridget Leonard on 78.
The Bronze Division was won by Jill Williams with 69. Julie Browne came second with 74. Third place was Kim Burgess with 75.
All in all this turned out to be a splendid competition played in very warm conditions.
Meanwhile, the Woodbury Park seniors were at it again playing for the Claret Jug in a qualifier that proved to be a mighty close contest with three players finishing with 39 points.
It was a better back nine that determined the one-two-three with John Man taking the honours and Robert Dart and Graham Nye having to settle for second and third places respectively.
Another week seems to have flown by with splendid weather giving us the opportunity to ‘strut our stuff’” up here on the common. Happy whacking. Cheers John.
