It was an unusual Upper Crust Monday Stableford this week, writes John Barnard.

Initially, we thought Colin Mitchell had won with 39 points. However, unusually a lady entered this competition and Sally Billighurst beat a large male field to win with 40 points.

There were four other golfers that had 39 points, three players had 38 and no less than nine other players were another point back, an amazingly close grouping of good scores.

Colin had a fairly average front nine five pars on his eighteen handicap got the job done.

In second place was Geoff Lory who also played well on the back nine and will be ruing a couple of putts that didn’t quite drop.

Haydon McCance would have hoped his one under gross back nine (including consecutive birdies on holes 10 and 12) would have been enough for the win but not this time, only good enough for third place.

Kym White retains his lead in the eclectic with a nett 48.7.
