South West Vets Spring Field Day held at Yeovil Golf Club

On a very cold, wet and windy day, the SWVLGA held their Spring Field Day at Yeovil on Thursday 4th April 2019.  There were some 120 players, less one or two who pulled out at the last minute due to the weather conditions, which were pretty horrendous! Cornwall fielded only six players, but four of them won prizes which was most commendable.  Bronze Div. II saw Jean Murray of Killiow come in 3rd with 26 points;  in Bronze Div. I Pat Crowson, Killiow, was 4th with 28 points;  in the Silver division Jean-Anne Evers, St. Austell was 2nd with 31 points, and Jill Simmons, Mullion, won the VV Cup (over 70’s) also with 31 points.  The overall winner was Judith Ezard from Okehampton with 35 points Congratulations to all six on such a difficult day.
