Green stars in monthly medal
DUE to recent bad weather, golf has been scarce at Beccles Golf Club in 2010. It therefore delighted members that the monthly medal was able to tee off on Saturday.

The lay-off must have had something to do with one of the competitors producing one of the best rounds of golf seen for a long time when Rod Green shot 75-15-60 to win the medal.
His round included two chip-ins for birdies from well off the greens and he at last mastered what had become his nemesis eighth hole.
You may also want to watch:
With only the 18th to play he needed a par four to record the magical score of nett 59 but pressure prevailed and he scored a bogey five, still a superb round of near faultless golf and well deserving his two shot handicap cut!
Mike Webb was also at his best, earning the runner-up spot with 88-23-65 beating Brian Lever on countback (76-11-65).

Thanks were expressed to Linda for her refreshments.
The morning's event was followed by the first ladies' competition since November. An enjoyable nine hole was won by ladies'captain Sam Cooper with Ann Brett second and Jenny Edmonds third.
On Sunday, completing a busy weekend, the first order of merit event of the year was held. After some computer malfunction in the scoring, the winner was finally declared as Sam Cooper, completing a double after her success on Saturday.
She also collected the 'slow play tortoise' trophy for being the last back to the clubhouse.
Club vice captain James Cushing, who had originally been declared the winner before the computer error was noticed, was relegated to the runner-up spot followed by Ron Walding in third.
Thanks went to Sam and David for their work on the greens and Sam for the refreshments.
On Saturday the second round of the winter foursomes will tee off at 8.15am.
