Event: Stableford
Prize Donor: Len Highland & David Lyons

Thanks to Len and Dave for their generous sponsorship support.

The ‘Little Master’, Jim Penman (left), is back in the winning circle taking out A Grade on a count back from ‘Ozzie’ Osborne.  Jim reckons he left a few shots on the course and in a recent event carded his best score for a long time – 74 off the stick – considerably less than his age!

A very good performance also from Bill Hesse to take out B Grade with 41 points, the best of the day.

I played in the same group as Ian Mulhall and saw how well he played to deservedly take out C Grade on a count back from long time Vet Lionel Willett.

A Grade Winner: Jim Penman 39 c/b, Runner Up: Ozzie Osborne 39
B Grade Winner: Bill Hesse 41, Runner Up: Matt Brindley 38
C Grade Winner: Ian Mulhall 38 c/b, Runner Up: Lionel Willett 38

Many of you will remember Terry Thompson, our most recent past Vice Captain, who returned to UK in late 2012 and currently lives in Torquay with wife Sue about a good 3 iron from Torquay Golf Club.

Grant and Denise Smallacombe caught up with Terry and Sue for lunch and a few pints of the local ale at Torquay Golf ClubTerry Harrison happened to be in the area so joined them also.

Unfortunately there wasn’t time for a round of golf, even between pints, but they did walk outside on a very fine day to take a look at a very nice golf course and for the obligatory photo.
