Trevor Innard retained the Rochford Cup on Sunday. Last year’s winner was level par for the morning back nine holes to go 6 up at halfway and although opponent Baz Patel put in a spirited afternoon performance, Innard was never likely to give up his grip on the trophy and took the match 4&3.
The ladies Gold Medal became almost match-play as two players finished several shots clear of the remainder. It was Susan Meddle (150) who eventually took first prize from Teresa Hirons (152) and third placed Pam Hayhurst (160).
It was a similar story in the Full Stableford as Lorna Steel (36) won with a 12 point margin from runner-up Gilian Lang (24) and Gloria Goldring (23) in third.
