Cathy breezes to Stoke Open title

TOFT’s Cathy Lee blew away the opposition at the recent Stoke Rochford Golf Club’s Ladies Open.

She put together a stupendous round of gross 74 (net 63) to take first place and win a score that win the Turnor Cup. Another Toft competitor, Helen Roscoe, produced a splendid score of gross 87 (net 70) for fourth place.

Toft ladies made an encouraging start in their home friendly match against Belton Park but the heavens opened after the 7th hole and the match had to be abandoned on the 13th.

The result of the foreshortened contest was a win of 4-0 for the home team.

Results: Sandra Wildmore/Lisa Gauci won 5 up; Hayley Hunt/Judith Childs won 1 up; Angela Bedwell/Viv Stanton won 2 up; Mary Stark/Bee McKechnie won 3&2.

An away friendly mixed match at Thorpe Wood provided kinder playing conditions but a less successful outcome, with Toft losing out by 21/2-31/2.
