The organisers of the Bridlington Links EGGS Section Spring Medal decided to have two divisions to allow over-20 handicappers to compete away from challenges of those who play solid golf every week.

The overall winner and leader in Division One was John Lamont with a card of two-under-par. What made the score more impressive was that it was achieved in driving rain and strong winds, particularly on the back nine.

EGGS captain Brian Isham was second with a return of one-over-par, with Ron Howarth completing the podium four shots back.

Division Two also had an under-par winner in the form of Shaun Duckwith. His one-under-par was enough to seal a win from Brian Gregory and Tony Whitaker, who were both three-over-par with Gregory nosing ahead on the countback rule.

Thursday’s back nine competition was a Singles Stableford Event with no player able to beat par.

Brian Isham was closest with 17 points.
