Cheddar defeat the rest of the world

The annual battle between Cheddar and the rest of the world at Wedmore Golf Club was won by Cheddar.

DESPITE some wet conditions at Wedmore Golf Club, there was some excellent scoring in the seniors’ medal.

Leading the way was Tim Harris, now making his presence felt in the seniors, who recorded a two under par gross 68 in winning Division 1 with a net 62. This was tough on Keith Thomas (64) and Brian Webber (65), who on any other day might have expected to have had the winning score.

Incredibly though, it was not the best net score of the day. This fell to Mike Hewart who had a net 61 to win Division 3 by an impressive five shots from Graham Jones (66), with Dennis Howard a further four shots adrift in third.

Division 2 had no spectacular scores, but some very good ones and a close finish as well. Dave Scarrott just claimed first place on countback from Peter Bendell, both players scoring 66. Bob Jackson took third place with a net 69, which included a hole-in-one to wrap up an extraordinary day’s golf.

Saturday saw the annual battle between Cheddar and the Rest of the World. Not surprisingly, the RoW had triumphed for the past two years, so Cheddar was desperate to stop the run of defeats.

There were many close matches which could have gone either way and changed the overall result, but in the end Cheddar managed to stop the rot and triumphed by 15.5-12.5, leaving Steve Major, playing his annual round of golf, to hand the trophy to the winning captain, Ian Bunn.
