THERE were some outstanding scores recorded at Settle as the favourite for the Millennium Cup was outshone by a newcomer.

Despite difficult playing conditions, the players were not deterred, and the increased turnout resulted in a highly competitive day's play.

The in-form Ben Terry struggled early on, dropping four shots on the first three holes. He showed real resolve by getting his game together with nine pars and a birdie to score a very credible 35 Stableford points.

Daniel Cardus was delighted with his 32 points. Chris Sharp, playing off his eight handicap, came in with an excellent 35. Dan Mellor also impressed to take second place with 36 points.

However, a relative newcomer to the Sunday competitions, George Taylor took centre stage scoring 37 points to take the trophy.

Seniors also turned out to play for the Captain's (Mike Noble) trophy. In the 18 hole Stableford competition, Duncan Brown continued his excellent run of form.

His 38 points proved good enough to hold off the challenge of his playing partner Colin Green, who had to settle for the runners up spot. Mike Elstub took third place with 35 points.
