Tony Glover took top spot in Division 1 when a full week of competitions returned at the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club last week, starting with the Seniors' Stableford.

Scoring proved difficult in wet conditions, with Glover's 35 points – including 16 over the last six holes to edge out runner-up Steve Lawrence on countback – securing him victory. Mike Munns also needed countback to take third place.

The best scores of the day came in Division 2, with winner Peter Spinks' total of 40 points one ahead of second-placed Derek Osborn and Mike Peacock in third.

James Robertson was the clear winner of Division 3 with 38 points, two better than David Dams, who was also two clear of third-placed Barry Stone.

The ladies eased their way back into action with a 15-hole contest, where scores on the best nine holes decided the outcome, leading to very close finishes in both divisions.

Liz Hill beat playing partner Liz Miller on countback in Division 1 after both scored 21 points. Ronnie Follenfant was third with 20.

There was an identical result in Division 2, where Esme Gulliver edged out Hazel Gough on countback, with both again scoring 21 points. Desiree McGowan was one behind in third.

Conditions were cold, wet and windy for the club Stableford and, while many struggled, there were a few remarkably good scores.

The best of the day was in Division 2, where Chris Norris scored 42 points to put himself seven clear of second-placed Brian Webber and Mark Higginbottom in third.

John Wormald topped Division 1 with 40 points, with James Brooking-Clark a close second on 39. James Vowles' 36 earned him third place.

Martin Blackmore was the third player to break 40 points, winning Division 3 with 41. That was three clear of Scott Perry in second, while third-placed Tony Wilde was a further shot back in 37.

Janet Lyons and Desiree McGowan were the only two ladies to brave the conditions.
