Wells Ladies through to Regional Finals

By Leah Smith in Golf

Wells Seniors have won their home matches against both Kingsdown and Clevedon. Good team performances were enhanced by some notable individual efforts from George White, who holed a monster-winning putt, Allan Bancroft, for a truly audacious chip-in and Ian Mills, for guiding partner, Nick Wilson, to victory by parring the last three holes. Geoff Ead, Ron Davey, Peter Bartholomew and Jack Baillie also made significant contributions.

The Stragglers’ team played at Minehead and it was chilly to start, but it warmed up nicely and good golf was played.

The first pairing of Steve Heath and Adam Holiday found the going a bit tough and succumbed to a surprising 5&4 defeat. Second out were the reliable Terry Searle and Bernhard Young; a very tight match saw them eventually triumph one up.

John Baker and Phil Kenworthy had a tough draw against the new Minehead Club Captain and a big hitting eight handicapper, resulting in a home win, 2&1. John Hockey and Bill Levell worked well together, and won two up.

The final pairing of Gary Leigh and Steve Porter battled hard, finally losing 3&2. Philippa Gowen and Cath Levell won their B&D Handicap Foursomes match in fine style against Bristol and Clifton away.

The Ladies’ Coronation Foursomes competition was played in dry conditions.

Janice White and Jill Bocquet came first on countback from Sue Hockey and Cath Levell and qualify to go on to the Regional Finals at Bath in August. We wish them luck.
