Sue and Katherine Sokol celebrate at Worlebury


Worlebury’s Sue and Katherine Sokol produced an outstanding display in the latest round of the Bristol & District Lady Golfers’ Alliance Scratch Foursomes Championship.

They welcomed opponents from Farrington Park for a home tie and made use of course knowledge to move three up at one stage.

The visitors rallied and continued to battle hard, but ran out of holes as the Sokols won 2&1 to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Worlebury Allstars visited Mendip Spring hoping to maintain their winning ways on Saturday.

Captain Andy Taylor picked a side mixed with youth and experience and saw them claim a 3-2 victory to extend their 100 per cent start to the season.

Tony Westren and Alexander Chandler came out on top by a resounding 7&6 margin, while the tried and tested pairing of Paul Lawrence and John Leech won 4&3.

And matchplay specialist Keri Allchurch and partner Graham Hewlett cilnched overall victory with their 5&3 triumph.

Worlebury Royals entertained Vivary Park on the same day, hoping for a change in fortunes following their recent defeat.

And Terry Santo's side certainly managed that with a resounding 5-0 triumph.

Will Denyar and Steve Cameron strolled to a 7&6 win, while there were 4&3 wins for their pairings of Dave Collard and Mark Puddy, Gareth Hawkes and Tom Main and Ben Main and Santo.

The final match of the day saw the steady hand of Dan Bovington help debutant Tom Dancey to the Dri-Build player of the day award as they claimed a 2&1 victory to complete the whitewash.
