Liz gets to grips with handicap to take spoils

On Tuesday the ladies had a charity day for Macmillan Cancer Support and competed for a prize kindly donated by Katrina Bradford.

Liz Denver had taken a few weeks to adjust to her last handicap reduction but a bit of fine tuning has obviously gone on and she was welcomed back to the winners podium this week with a very impressive 43 points.

Liz started with a double bogey and finished with a double, but in between there was some very fine golf played including a birdie two at the twelfth.

On top of her automatic handicap adjustment Liz’s score warranted an exceptional scoring reduction seeing her handicap tumble to 25 which means she has lost 11 shots in four months so congratulations to Liz and keep up the good work.

Christine Hagan continues her good run of form and this earned her the gross in this week’s competition.

Christine had a very steady round with only one ding but was just unable to get any birdies but is more than coping with her new single digit handicap.

Section one went to Heather Shaw who just pipped Nuala Beatty on the count back with both ladies scoring 35 points.

Heather is enjoying a great season and this section prize must surely help to reinforce her spot in the order of merit table.

In section two experience just got the better of youth when Joy Stevenson took top spot with 39 points just beating Maeve McKavanagh who had 38 points and Ella Beatty who had 36 points. Both Joy and Maeve warranted handicap reductions so hopefully Maeve will see that as some consolation.

Section three went to Claire White with 33 points and this could well kick start some good golf from Claire who has had a bit of a quiet spell in the last few weeks.
