Millennium Cup result

There was a remarkably close finish to the Annual Challenge of the Sexes for the Millennium Claret Jug at Thetford Golf Club on Sunday.

The format was a Greensomes Stableford with the five best cards from the seven pairs taking part deciding the destination of the trophy.

The men built up a big lead but then word came in that the final ladies' pair, Shelly Pleasance and Jenny Rowe, were compiling a great score. They signed for a staggering 47 points - and then found they were agonisingly one short overall. The men's total was 162 and the ladies 161.

The Ladies' Captain Gill Welham presented Club Captain Trevor Wignall with the trophy by the closest possible margin.

The Ladies' Autumn Closed Meeting on Tuesday was a high/low drawn Greensomes event.

The weather was kind, remaining dry although a little chilly at times.

 

Everyone was thrilled that the pairing of Shelly Pleasance and Olive Hambling won the event with an amazing score of 41 points as Olive has only just come back from injury after a very difficult year.  Shelly, who plays off 4 couldn’t believe her luck to have 19 strokes for the competition and obviously made very good use of them as their score was seven points clear of the second-placed pairing of Helen Ayres and Liz Wigg. Third place went to Liz Robinson and Sheena Setchell on 31 points with Vera Squirrell and Alison Jones fourth on 30 points.
