ALEX EASTER took the Division 1 honours in the April weekend Stableford at Caversham Heath.

Easter scored 40 points, two more than runner–up Gareth Goodall with 38. Third was Matt Robertson with 34.

Division 2 winner was Richard Mackay on countback from Gerry Rogers, both with 38 points. Third was Anthony George with 36.

Jason Springer scored 36 points to win Division 3 from Nigel Priestley with 34 and Paul Perry with 33.

There was some good scoring when the Midweek Order of Merit got underway with a medal competition.

Mark Russell topped Division 1 with a net 66. A decent front nine was just the appetiser to a very tasty back nine, including a run of three birdies in four holes from the 11th.

Runner–up Matt Robertson also had a blitz of birdies, recording six in his net 67, with just four dropped shots.

Lee Kirton was third after recording birdies on the second and 15th holes to help him to a net 69.

Ladies’ vice–captain Kathy North claimed the honours in Division 2 with a net 69 for a convincing four–shot victory. Ralph Lambert equalled the CSS and shot a net 73 to claim second place. Third was Caroline Dover with a net 75.

There were some good scorelines as the Central Sevens team beat Drayton 4–3 on Saturday, with wins for Dave Stankard, Clive Adamson, Alan Schofield and Lee Kirton. Schofield won eight and seven, but Kirton went even better, winning nine and seven, after having lost the opening hole.

The ladies beat their Springs counterparts 3–1 away from home. There were victories for Kathy North and Jane Weller (six and four), Kjersti Cannon and Caroline Dover (three and two), ably supported by Pam Stapeley and Audrey Fox (one up).

Anne Smith and Caroline Dover are through to the fourth round of the Daily Mail Foursomes after clinching victory over a Reading GC pair on the 15th hole.
