Despite a thick dose of Cornish mizzle sweeping over Falmouth Golf Club, 62 members signed up for round three of the Summer League on Saturday, writes Keith Rashleigh.

Eight handicapper Neil Dickinson deservedly won with 41 stableford points. His front nine produced a steady total of 18 points including a birdie at the sixth.

Neil then went on to card an impressive one under par gross back nine, which included birdies at the 11th and 13th holes for an additional 23 points.

This was just enough to win on countback from Peter Lewis, who hit the turn with 21 points including birdies at the second and eighth holes.

His back nine saw another 20 points with birdies at the 11th and 15th holes. Third also with 41 points was Jack Stocker who also birdied the 11th. Unfortunately, his double bogey seven at the 17th proved costly.

There were seven twos recorded during the competition, with Rik Shaw, Peter Lewis and Crispin Merritt all doing so at the second, while Tom Parry achieved the same at the fourth. Phil Jones made an eagle at the 11th, while Nick Chinn made two at the second and fourth.
