T&P golfers play Newton Cup on Saturday


ON Saturday the golfers at Taunton and Pickeridge took part in the Newton Cup a Waltzing Stableford, which involved one score to count on hole 1, two on 2 and three on 3 and then back to on score on hole 4 etc!

At the end of the round the team that danced their way to the top of the leaderboard were Clare Welsher, Mark Bushen and Rich New who between then scored 74 points.

Second place was claimed by Miles Skuse, Chris Wadham and Richard Bond with 71 points, John White, Keith Welsher and Tim Salter were third with 70 while Paul Hewton, Tim Nuttall and Dave Kennedy ended fourth.

On Tuesday the Ladies took part in a Stableford that was won by Jan Olive with 36 points.

However three players returned on 35 points, but after countback it was Ali McGown who was second, Berni Hatcher was third and Mary-Jo Shepherd fourth.

The only two of the day was scored by Mary-Jo Shepherd on the par 3 second hole.

On Sunday 18 couples took part in the Annual Griffin Cup Mixed Greensomes Stableford competition.

The winners on the day with 42 points were Terina and Kevin Parker, Lyn and Nigel Gridley were second with 40, and Jacky and John Ford third with 39.

The highlight of the competition was a Hole-in-One by Jacky Ford on the 140-yard 16th hole. The former Lady Captain has scored two previous Aces, but these were when playing abroad so this was Jacky’s first on her home course.

Last year Mary- Jo Shepherd aced the 10th hole so this competition is expensive at the 19th hole!

The Best Front 9 Score went to Trevor French and Mary-Jo Shepherd, with19 points
The Best Back 9 Score was won by Phil Barrett and Ali McGown with 20 points on count-back.

Twos were recorded by Nigel and Lyn Gridley, David and Judy Powell, Kevin and Terina Parker (2), Laurence and Jeanne Leader, Joe and Linda Knowles, Trevor French and Mary-Jo Shepherd
