Wells Golf Club kicked the new year off with a bang, starting 2013 by holding a shotgun fourball better-ball competition.

Graham Dowden and Tony Wiseman managed seven birdies and an eagle on their way to 44 points, handing them victory by a single shot.

Josh Higgs and Colin Sellar finished as runners-up on countback, also scoring seven birdies and an eagle, followed by Vic Rossiter and Nigel Goodwin in third.

Club captain Andy Williams thanked Erica Klim and David Gibbons for organising the event.

The ladies' section enjoyed the last roll-up of the autumn season in winter sunshine with a Tax Exempt format, organised by Jen Jones.

The event was played over 18 holes and at the end the teams could exempt six of their worst holes from the total score.

Carol Nicholson and Phyl Lewison won with 53.5 points using a skeleton third score. Second were Sue Slade, Jill Bocquet and Jen Jones with 51, with Kitty Usher and Linda Wright third, also with a skeleton score, on 48.

Tuesday roll-ups for the ladies continue during the spring, with the draw being made at 9.15am, and all are welcome to join in the fun competitions.
