Audrey Cowlin, Alix Kew and Phil Hawkins opened 2022 in style for Worlebury Golf Club as they picked up victory in the first event of the year in the Princes Diana Salver recently.

The Honours Board Competition, which is a stand aside Texas Scramble, consists of three-player teams from each section of the membership.

Cowlin, Kew and Hawkins recoded an impressive 12 birdies for a nett twelve-under-par 58, three shots clear of the runners-up Helen Clarke, Peter Phillips and Neil Sillick.

The trio were one shot clear of the third placed team of Ray Collick, Janet Jamieson and Steve Taylor.  In their round Helen, Peter and Neil carded three birdies and thirteen pars, just one more birdie than Jamieson, Collick and Taylor.

It was that man again, Ross Macnab, teaming up this time with Sean Richardson, to win the  Any Gender Three Clubs and Putter 4BBB with 44 points on countback from runners-up Jim Skinner and Dougie Woods.  

Birdie machine Macnab carded five birdies and six pars during his round and his teammate Richardson helped their score with a birdie and a par. 

Skinner and Woods, between them, carded three birdies and seven pars for their score of 44 points, but it was the double on the par five 15th that allowed Macnab and Richardson to snatch the win on countback.
