Van Rijthoven top scores on difficult day out

The third round of the Hudson Plumbing trophy saw 25 ladies compete in a stableford round last Wednesday.

Despite cool, sunny conditions, good scores were hard to come by with heavy fairways and tricky pin placements but Jennifer Van Rijthoven was the only player to score under her handicap with 40 points to claim the winner’s prize.

Van Rijthoven blitzed the front nine holes with 37 off the stick which included two birdies before adding another birdie on the 12th hole to finish with a 23/17 point split.

Bev Pedlar only had one wipe to  finish runner up with 34 points from Jennette Braun on a countback from Denise Harvey with 32 points.

Ball run down winners included Harvey, Karen Forster and Pauline Paterson, both 30 points and Helen McIntyre, 29 points.

Harvey’s drive on the 8th hole rewarded her with a birdie and the pro shot prize.

Special prizes for the second shot, long drive on the first hole was won by Jennifer Van Rijthoven in A grade, Janina Morrison taking home the B grade prize and the second shot in C grade was won by Mary Kentish.

 This Wednesday players will contest a stroke round for the monthly  medal held in conjunction with the second round of the Winter Salver.
