Oblivious to a hornet’s nest on 14th tee, game competitor Lynn Richardson returned 41 points off her own handicap. Ceding 2 shots to the men, Lynn finished 3rd to Nigel Marsh (43) and Tony Kopczak (40). Tony elected to play off 23 in the competition (h’cap 24), whilst Messrs. Grand and Hunt didn’t check their gross scores properly before returning cards to the Committee.
Improver Paul Grand snatched the Diamond Jubilee from Paul Appleton (both 64s) on 18 by stroking in a long birdie putt from off the green for a better countback back 9. Early clubhouse leader Phil Flanagan shot a glorious 65 and best lady was Maureen Slade with 68.
For the men CSS was unchanged from SSS 69.
Graeme Syme retains his lead after 3 rounds of the Anniversary Trophy by one shot over John Morris and a further shot over Dave Winter. Jon Copper is also in the mix just 4 shots behind.

Mitcham Ladies – Home Leg
Result: Win 3-1
Overall result: Win 4-4
Having won the “Rich Mitch” Cup for the last few years things were hanging by a thread this year, after a comprehensive 3:1 loss to Mitcham in the away match earlier in the year.
The return match on Dukes was held in awful weather and was fiercely contested. I am proud to say that the Richmond team won 3:1 at home to tie the match and retain the trophy!
Thanks to all team members who performed well.
Though only 5 players competed in the August Monthly Medal, it was a hard fought competition. Susan Smith was the overall winner (net 71) from Joan Mulcahy in 2nd place (net 72) who beat Lia Donath on the back 9.
In a closely contested August medal, Stuart Nash raised his game to win by one with a glorious 65 despite 6 at the last. Dave Winter was second with Peter Harrington a further shot behind.
The balance of play on Duke’s resulted in CSS being one lower than SSS at 69.
In the Grand Medal Trophy, Graeme now leads Peter by 11.
Paul Doran’s performance at NAPGC Stableford Mapledurham in earlier week is confirmed @ 45 points securing him a place at St Andrews. Paul was level par on the back 9.
