Joy for Juila in the trophy
10:00am Thursday 4th October 2012 in Local
JULIA Liddington won Ombersley’s Lewis Trophy in a hard-fought battle.
She emerged triumphant despite having the same score as Sue Hele, in second, and third-placed Helen Lane because of count-back.
Nadine Anderson won the September weekday Medal with a score of 72, beating Althea Rannie into second and Lane into third.
The weekend monthly medal was won by Melanie Leroy on count-back, followed by Margaret Leatherby and Jenny Taylor.
Meanwhile, a group of Ombersley lady golfers travelled to The Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake recently to support the Women’s British Open.
They chose the driest day of the tournament which was won by South Korea’s Jiyai Shin with a score of 279 over four rounds.
Ladies captain Dr Sue Jenkins took her rightful place on the sponsors throne at the tournament.
It was particularly apt as Dr Jenkins had earlier that week scored an eagle on the ninth hole at Ombersley while playing in the captain’s pairs.
Results — Lewis Engineering Trophy: 1 Julia Liddington 39 points (count-back); 2 Sue Hele 39; 3 Helen Lane 39.

- Richard Smith overcame heavy winds and cold temperatures to win his division at Cleobury Mortimer’s final September medal.
He shot a spectacular nett score of 66 to top Division Two.
Jack Severn, Mike Wood and Ian Gough carded some respectable one-under and level scores to move towards the top of the leaderboard.
However, none of them could catch Tom Wright who shot a three-under-par gross to give him a nett 65 and the Division One crown.
Tom is now off 1.2 and heading towards scratch which is a great achievement for the 17-year-old.
