Covid-19 triples winners revealed at St Andrews

Sisters Rebecca and Jennifer McMillan won the Covid-19 triples alongside Tim Wyatt at St Andrews.

The trio needed a convincing victory in their final match against Paul Smart, Roger Brereton and Robin Potter last week and got it, by 25-8.

That left their only real rivals, brothers Simon and Jack Angove and Tiff Webb, needing to beat Alan Dawes, Sue Sinclair and Brian Reeves by 16 shots in their final game on Sunday.

However, illness saw the Angove team unable to play and they had to concede, leaving the McMillan sisters and Wyatt two points clear.

The McMillans, both in their 20s, are outstanding players and have represented Somerset women in the national inter-county Johns Trophy.
