Time for change at Wedmore

ISLE of Wedmore club captains' terms of office come to a close in November.

ISLE of Wedmore club captains' terms of office come to a close in November.

First to change is seniors' captain but before that, captain Ellis Nearn joined with director Andrew Edwards to take on the rest of the seniors in a combined four-ball better ball and greensome competition. On this occasion the outcome was not as good for the captain as the rest of his year and his score is best forgotten.

Winners were Peter Bendell and Tony Roe, who scored an excellent 43 points, closely followed by Bob Jackson and Phil Rogers with 42 which was a further point ahead of Jim Sims and Peter Rodwell.

This was also the last fund-raising event of the year and the �150 collected brought the total to almost �1,200, a record for the section, and a reflection of Ellis' efforts in the year.

The knock-out finals were completed in wind and rain when the delayed seniors' pairs took place. Despite the weather, the match was closely fought with only four holes halved.

After a poor start, Peter Hathaway and Philip Springfield pushed ahead and kept a narrow lead over opponents Tony Hoskings and Peter Rutter. Philip eventually putted out for a half to win on the final hole.
