All three sections of Wedmore Golf Club were in action this week, kicking off with the Seniors in their monthly medal.

Conditions were by no means perfect but this did not seem to worry many of the players, particularly in Division One.

This was won by Moly McMillan with a five under par 65, but only winning by virtue of a better back nine than Mark Cross who had matched his score.

Steve Lawrence was a shot back in third place. 

Ian Sentance won Division Two with a nett 67, chased hard by runner-up Martin Blackmore who finished a shot behind as Graham Clifford took third place on 70. 

Division Three saw yet another close finish with Dennis Howard winning on 68 with countback being required to sort out the places. 

Brian Kidd took second, with Alasdair McDonald third after both scored 70.
