On Sunday, the penultimate round of the Livery Dole Mitsubishi Winter League was played and a Texas Scramble was the format, writes John Barnard.

Don Cooper and Lee Wenham are regular golf partners so will have been pleased to have been drawn together and they were joined by Jerry Russell.

The final result was very close between the first three teams but Jerry, Don and Lee were first with a medal score of 55.0. They went out quite slowly scoring wise, only 34, but an excellent back nine of 29 including birdies on holes, 10, 13, 14 and 15 got them home.

In second, only point two worse were Lawrence Hill, Mark Laird and Vernon Ruffle. They had birdies on holes, one, five, 9, 12 and 18, but dropped a couple as well which cost them. They in turn were point two ahead of the third team that was made up by Graham Davies, Jeremy Holden and Mark Thomas. A strong, fairly low handicapped team so fewer shots but more birdies which were achieved on holes six, eight, 13, 15, 17 and 18.

Looking at the overall table, all three leaders were in the prizes this week, but Lee Wenham has slightly extended his lead to 31 points, with Graham Davies on 26 and Jeremy Holden on 25.

This Sunday (March 13), it is the re-run of the Captain’s Drive In (still a couple of places if members are looking for a game) which doesn’t count towards the league so only one Sunday to go.

Can Lee be beaten? It looks a big call, but Graham and Jeremy will be trying!
