Anne Dewhirst made a clean sweep of the prizes at Todmorden Golf Club Lady Captain Cynthia Murray’s prize day.

She had the straightest drive, nearest the pin and most importantly the overall prize with a combined two round total of nett 143.

She started the second day three shots behind first round winner Jill Keogh but raced through the field with a nett 68.

Jill Keogh finished runner up with a nett 144 and the prizes were presented at the evening dinner.

The men played the first round of the JH Barker Trophy last Saturday and in calm conditions scores were low.

Simon Hemmington leads the field by one stroke going into next Saturday’s final round.

Among the chasing pack are Rabbits Captain Alan Stobbs, whose good form reappeared in the calm conditions .

Also in the running is big hitting short putt specialist Alan Dickinson. They are one and two shots back respectively. Also in the running is the youngest of the Barnes triplets with a nett 72 .

The Rive Rocks club’s handicap team, after a promising start, have hit the wall with consecutive 8-0 defeats at the hands of Ryburn and Lightcliffe.

It is hoped that the introduction of two new players may see a return to winning ways in their next fixture at home against Dewsbury.

The scratch team had had successive draws at Castlefields and Queensbury and will be looking to win their next fixture at home to Lightcliffe, providing scratch team captain Frank Greaves can remember his golf shoes!

Lady Captain Lorraine Boulton was in top form in Sunday’s Whitaker Cup Stableford event at Hebden Bridge GC.

Her excellent 40 points score earned her first place with the in-form Jan Cox taking second.

Hebden Bridge Ladies hosted Longley Park on a calm and sunny Wednesday in the Halifax and Huddersfield Evening League.

Home advantage paid off on the tough moorland course with Skip ladies winning 4-0.

Joan Scott was first back in the clubhouse, having won 7 and 6. Jan Cox beat her opponent 6 and 5 and Lorraine Boulton had a good 6 and 4 result.

Team captain Linda Powell was last off the course with a 3 and 2 win.
