THE combination of Mario Eastham and Terry Martin was in top form as they carried off Bransford Golf Club seniors’ B and H Trophy with an impressive score of just eight.

The competition is played as a pairs better-ball, using 90 per cent of the players’ handicaps, but the format also takes half the course as a medal half-round and the back nine as a stableford with the number of points gained deducted from the medal score.

Eastham and Martin were closely pushed all the way by Harry Godwin and Roger Steade who finished just a point behind on nine.

Two off were Phil Spencer and Andy Lamb and Martin Linley and Simon Tuck on 11 and then on 12 came Tony Bowman and Brian Corfield and Bob McGrath and Roger Clark.

The section has also just staged a fun stableford using only three clubs and a putter.

Mike Weaver (19 handicap) led the way in Division One with 39 points, two ahead of Gerry Rebbeck (14) and four in front of Graham Wilks (18).

Two other leading scores were Trevor Atkinson (15) and Phil Spence (18) with 33 and 31 respectively.

The Division Two winner was Godwin (23) with 36 and then came Dave Lindsay (23) on 33 and both Bill Bowen (23) and Linley (21) on 31.

Meanwhile, the leader in Division Three was Robin Brighton (30) who scored 38 and he was followed by Mike Hendry (29) and Roy Mayo (26) as they both tallied 36.

Charlie Hawkridge (26) finished with 34 and Pauline Wetton (30) 33.

The ladies’ August stableford produced a win for Eve Lynes (23) with a total of 35 and she was ahead of Trish Godwin (25) and six better off than Leigh Thomas (19).
