The Charles Stanley stableford saw six players registere scores of 40 or more on Monday, writes George Carr.

Perhaps because Saturday’s downpour had taken much of the ‘sting’ out of the course and made the greens more receptive?

In these benign conditions then we find Colin Macklin’s 47 points more than enough to take first place and reduce his 19 handicap to one of 15, which handicap represents more truly his present form - well played indeed.

Spencer Jarret’s 43 points (one birdie, one eagle) might have been good enough to win on another day and B Sanford, Dave Pepperell, CC Roberts all on 41 might have hoped for better.

Last man in the forties was K Price with an even 40 points - well played, gentlemen all.
