Tom Wells Putter
This novel competition is played with only three clubs, one of them of necessity a putter and over only 15 holes.
Proving that for many of us, 14 clubs is 11 too many it was won by former Vulcan pilot Stefano Episcopo who, playing off a handicap mark of 21, used his limited weaponry to great effect with a total of 31 points.
The best gross round of the day was by nine handicapper Evan Drayton whose 30 points won Division One. Second place in Division One was taken by in-form John Hall with 29 points from Michael Helyer and Dave Marshall with the same score.
In Division Two, three players – David Golding, John Slaven, Robin Johnson – scored 30 points and were placed second, third and fourth respectively on countback scoring.
The 'Amazing Grace' trophy for the highest scoring player over the age of 80 was won by Tony Lester who just squeezed into this category having celebrated octogenarian status only a few days ago and seems to have more parties than David Lloyd- George!
