Purnell Cup Final – Monday 2nd September
Finalists Jane Ackling and Ann Hincks had battled through three rounds to reach the last two. Both had experienced close matches in their respective run-up’s, but having reached the final, Jane was faced with giving Ann 17 shots!

Both set off on a beautiful early Autumn morning accompanied by Barbara Cross, who had very kindly agreed to referee. It was very close during the first few holes with Jane one up going down the 7th. However having made the green in 3, she then proceeded to four putt from ten feet. Easily done! Ann on the other hand, methodically arrived on the green and two putted for a 7/6. Back to all square down the 8th.

Psychologically, four putting may well have ended the game for Jane, but she impressively composed herself to win the next three holes with a series of good drives and crisp iron shots. The win was sealed with a fantastic eight foot putt on the 15th. Jane was delighted to have beaten such a touch opponent in Ann, whose experience (a previous Purnell Cup winner) and steady short game was a battle throughout.

Congratulations to both ladies for getting to the final; an achievement in itself that should not be discounted. Finally, many thanks again to Barbara Cross for taking time out to referee.
