SATURDAY'S wonderful weather was matched by some good scoring in the Peter Robinsons Professionals Day competition at Skipton Golf Club.

Best score on the day was carded by Graham Smyth in Division 2 with a points tally of 43 thanks to an excellent first nine holes.

This gave him a comfortable win over nearest rival Barry Gill three points back. Division One was a tighter affair with Lee Smith taking top spot on 42 points , just one point ahead of David Grant and Steve Clayton.

The Ladies section finally got to play the Belles Wyke Trophy with lady captain Amanda Kilner running out the eventual winner with 38 points, one ahead of long time leader Barbara Thornton.

Meanwhile in the Bradford Union Scratch League the Skipton outfit continue with their struggles. A creditable 4-4 draw at home to St Ives was followed by a 5-3 loss at South Bradford.

Chris Payne and Matt Ryder picked up the points in both matches. This leaves the team at the foot of the division one table. The 8-15s team came out slightly worse over their two matches home and away with Hanging Heaton, winning the home contest 5-3 but losing the away leg 6-2. The latter result brought to an end Gordon Winkup’s excellent run of victories for the side.

Meanwhile, Kirkby Lonsdale ladies were on form at the Westmorland & North West Handicap Shield which took place at Kendal Golf Club.

The team of seven ladies battled it out against a number of teams, and the five lowest came in with an overall best nett score of 366.
