Lesley takes Hampshire GC August Medal
3:42pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in Sport
The Hampshire Golf Club Ladies August Medal competition overall winner was Lesley Compton with a fine net 69 ahead of Sue Davis net 71. Sue had won the Saturday competition in which Rosemary Parnell was second with a net 71, and Lesley had won on the Tuesday with Gay Sutton second with a net 76.
The Saturday Stableford winner was Toni Prince with 35 points and Tracy Price finished second with 33. Jenny Perkins was the winner on the Tuesday with 34 and Doreen Lewis finished second with 31.
Thus the overall winner was Toni Prince with Jenny Perkins second. The final of the Ladies Pairs match play was played recently with Toni Prince and Julie Dixon against Lori Channon and Rosemary Parnell. After 15 holes, Toni and Julie were two up with three to play but there was an excellent fight back as Lori and Rosemary won 16 and 17 to make the match all square. However, an excellent putt on 18 by Toni won the hole and the match by one up for her and partner Julie. The Lady Captain’s Trophy was a testing challenge for all who took part as they could only use irons and no woods.
Jacqui Norris seemed to enjoy the challenge as she returned an excellent 34 points to win from Glennis Robson with 33.
The Ladies took part in this year’s Corhampton Ladies Centenary Shield Eclectic in a format whereby one pair plays in the morning round and the second pair plays in the afternoon, trying to improve on the morning scores. The pairings of Toni Prince and Tracy Price and also Audrey Welfare and Lesley Compton took part and they played some excellent golf to finish in a very creditable fourth place out of the 39 teams that took part.
