There were some terrific scores for Anne McHarg’s President’s Day competition at Thetford Golf Club, with Dean Scott edging Rob Taylor on countback after both recorded a remarkable total of 48 points.
There was a shotgun start for a blue flag competition, with extra Stableford points available for choosing to play to the more difficult pin positions.
Rob Taylor took full advantage, picking up 22 points at the blue flag holes, but it was not quite enough as Dean Scott had 25 on the back nine, three more than Rob.
Nic Barnes also had a day to remember but his 47 was only good enough for third place.
The nearest-the-pin winner at the 16th was Mick Maskell.
In the afternoon there was a mixed event and the winners were club captain Trevor Wignall and Kath Malvern with 34. They were one ahead of Rob Faulkner and Sheila Spreadborough with Robert and Sheena Setchell taking third place with 31, beating Dave Smith and Pauline O’Sullivan on countback.
Phil Beer (16th) and Sheena Setchell (third) took the nearest the pin prizes.
