Annie Patten won the 36-hole Ladies Club Championship title at Wedmore Golf Club in fine style.

Patten and Abi Moore shared second place one shot behind Dawn Chadwick, who carded 85 in the opening round, with reigning champion Shirley Gooding in fourth on 88.

And a second round score of 83 saw Patten take the Insport Trophy by seven shots from Gooding.

Moore was joint leader of the nett competition at halfway alongside June Smith, Ange Webber and Janet Gilbert, after all shot 71s.

And they proved the only below-par rounds of the day as players tired during the second round, with Chadwick slipping 10 shots behind Patten by the turn.

Patten's nearest challengers at this stage were Moore, three back, and Gooding, who was five adrift but she widened the gap over the final nine holes.

Moore slipped back over the last four holes but a nett total of 147 saw her claim the Directors' Cup, ahead of Smith (150) and Wendy Lucas (152).
