Liz battles weather to win Stableford

Liz HaughtonThe Ladies Midweek Stableford competition was played for in foul weather conditions, and Greetham Valley’s Ladies yet again showed their metal by staying out on the Lakes course despite the almost continuous rain which had a heavy effect on the scoring.

Third place was taken by Gillian Upton with 30 points in a round that started full of promise with 18 points on the front half; however, the rain gradually wore her down and her scoring tailed off as the attractions of the dry clubhouse overcame her concentration.

Second place went to Cathy Steele with 31 points and she likewise started strongly but faded as the round went on.

The overall winner was Liz Haughton, playing off 6, with 34 points and a remarkably even scoring round of pars and bogeys on all holes.
