Stoke Rochford golf: Cate and Judy produce masterclass

A field of 10 pairs played in the ladies’ Chandler Bowl at Stoke Rochford Golf Club last Wednesday.

Playing a stableford betterball off 3/4 handicap, Judy Rawson and Cate Cullington mastered the blustery conditions to win with 39pts, nine clear of Ruth Greenfield and Sue Booth.

* Eleven former seniors captains plus three previous club skippers made up seniors captain Mike Nixon’s side to play the team of seniors vice-captain Graham Manton.

The vice-captain’s team prevailed five games to three with some sparkling performances from Brian Ayto and Phil White to consign the captain’s team to the Turkey Cup.

* The long-running Seniors Winter League came to a conclusion with the play-off final.

Brian White, with Eddie Plant, defeated his brother Phil White and partner Ken Taylor 4 and 3. Brian added the league to his Winter Warmers triumph earlier in the month with Phil once more the runner-up.
