On Wednesday the ladies played their fourth medal competition of the season, writes Stephen Birley.

Twenty-four ladies took part in glorious sunshine, with the course playing hard and fast.

In third place, with a score of 72 was Judy Ritz. In second place was Susan Hackett, with 70, which got her a handicap reduction to 34, and winning, with a score of 64, was Andrea Milton. This resulted in a handicap cut of three for her, to 26.

Last Friday, twenty-four ladies played in a Ping four ball qualifier. This is a team competition where you compete in pairs.

The winners on the day were Susan Hackett and Andrea Milton, with 40 points. Second were Liz Chance and Yvonne Anning, with 39 points on count back from Jill Jeffery and Pauline Couldwell in third place, also with 39.
