Phil Millward and Tom Eadon reached the final of the Leicestershire and Rutland Golf Union Senior County Foursomes after a superb semi-final win on Monday.

Melton gave six shots to a strong Lingdale pairing on the neutral turf of Beedles Lake, but shot three birdies during the round to secure a 4 and 3 win.

* Seniors’ captain Haydn Snow took 36 golfers to Wollaton Park for his away day last week.

Playing a team game with two to count on the par fours, three on the fives, and everyone on the par threes, scoring was very competitive.

The winning team was Gerry Stephens, Ken Longbottom, Julian Kisiel and Alan Terrza.

The prize for nearest the pin in two, on the sixth hole, was won by Julian Kisiel, and nearest-the-pin on the eighth went to Bob Luke with Ken Longbottom winning the longest drive on the par five 15th. The golf was followed by a meal and prizegiving.

* Guy Rayson took advantage of the excellent course condition and superb greens to return a gross 74 and nett 66 to win round one of the Presidents Putter on Saturday.

Guy shot the lowest gross score of the day and finished two shots clear of Glenn Price’s nett 68. Glrenn was second on countback from Steve Goddard.

The second round takes place on Saturday.

Two’s sweep: Brian Cole, Glenn Price, Adrian Stokes, Richard Kendall, Mick Wilson, Guy Rayson, Ian Anderson, Callum Relf.

* Ricki Curtis went one better, with a nett 65, to secure a seven-shot runaway victory in the fourth round of the Compton Cup.

Runner-up Paul Ward finished with a nett 72, just ahead of Malcolm Farrow (nett 73).

* The August 5 midweek medal was won with a nett 65, shot by Scott Cartwright.

Don Povey took second place on nett 67, while Chris Carmichael’s 71 won him third prize on countback over the back nine.

* Julia Brown won the ladies’ silver salver 1-up on the course from Diane Orson (1-down) and third-placed Drina Terzza (2-down).

Lady captain Karen Middleton won the Bronze Salver on countback from Denise Waldron, both 2-down on the course. Pat Skelton (4-down) was third.
