GOLFING partners Sandra Taylor and Jean Lamb scored a success for the North when they won the national final of the Australian Spoons competition at Wilmslow.
The pair, from Rudding Park in Yorkshire, beat partnerships representing the other five England Golf regions. They scored 32 points to take the honours in the Stableford foursomes competition for players with handicaps of 15 and over.
“We really didn’t expect to win and when we realised that we had it was a bit overwhelming,” said Sandra.
“We couldn’t take it in! It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I’d recommend anyone to take part in the Australian Spoons. We’ve been extremely well looked after.”
The Rudding Park pair played to their handicaps - 15 and 18 – on the front nine but found the last few holes of the inward half challenging. However, their score was two points ahead of their closest challengers.
