The delayed Colin Eason Motors stableford took place on the Lakes course on a warm and very windy day but winner Kev Hingle took it all in his stride.

Kev dropped just two shots in the front nine and three on the back for a fantastic total of 42 points.

He said he has been playing well this year and, apart from the double bogie on the par five second, he was very happy with his day’s work. He was cut to ten.

Kev didn’t have it all his own way, however. Chris Howe also came in with the same score but was pushed into second place on countback and was cut to 16. Gordon Barbour was third with 40 points.

Liz Haughton, playing in the Colin Eason, also showed a complete disregard for the wind which seemed to strengthen as the day wore on. She was level par after ten holes and finished with a great 38 points. Liz, who has already seen her handicap cut three times this year, was cut to 7.

Her daughter Ellie, who is just 14, ran her pretty close, however. She also had 38 but thanks to a ‘blob’ on the 17th was pushed into second on countback and was cut to 33.

Third and fourth was also decided on countback, Heather Morgan taking third ahead of Pat Jamieson after both scored 37 points.

l Trevor Smith had a hole in one on the difficult par three 12th during the men’s July mid week medal. He hit a five iron 175 yards into the wind to get his ace. This was his second at Greetham and fourth overall. He also won a Boss watch from How Did I Do for his efforts.

Twenty two handicapper Stuart Knowles won the medal with a 67 and was cut to 20. Ralph Clark had a nett 71 to take second and Peter Key was third, with a 72. Trevor Smith won the lowest gross with a 75.

l Nick Lawson off 18 won division one of the seniors July medal with a 68. This was good enough to win the overall medal and earn himself a cut to 17.

Keith Smith was second with 70. Seven handicapper Tim Nixon took third place and won the lowest gross on countback, with a gross 78, nett 71. Peter Giblett and Derek Coombes were fourth and fifth respectively with nett 71. Division two was won by Paul Dandeker with a 70. Gordon Wiles took second on countback from Trevor Davis after both came in with a 74.

l The seniors, led by captain Radley Wardhaugh, had a great win away to Rutland County during the week, by six games to two.
