This years Boys Championship got under way at Lyme Regis after a day of rain! The sun shone brightly and there was a slight breeze to make it interesting for the 33 boys taking part to compete to become the County Boys Amateur Champion. Once more the scoring proved to be very good and early starter Stuart Wight lead the way with a fine one over 72 followed by club team mate david Lyon on 73. It was all Lyme as George Seed shot the best round of the morning with a fine level par 71. With only some four shots separating the top ten places it was going to be a great afternoon’s golf to see who will lift the Luffman Cup later today. A great 75 by Morgan Taylor from Parkstone but him in the driving seat for the handicap championship on net 67 two ahead of Yeovil’s Will Chesterman and Weymouth’s Mark Rankin and Sean Dimmick.

So it was onto the second round and all players given the superb conditions could still shoot low which proved to be the case as Stuart Wight had 6 birdies and two bogies for a great 67 for a 139 3 under total and with George Seed finding it tougher in the afternoon the Championship was going to Stuart but there was a slight scare as the round of the day went to Ashley Woods Dominic Dunstan who went out in 29 with one par 7 birdies and one bogey a double bogey on the fourteenth put pay to a course record and a possible championship but a fine birdie on the last saw him equal it with a stunning 66 putting him on 142 level par for the two rounds and second place. Tom Plumb Yeovil pipped David Lyon to third slot with a fine 1 under 70 also for a 142 total losing out to Dominic on countback!! Dominic took the handicap trophy with that fine afternoon round which was a net 62 just pipping young will Chesterman from Yeovil by one shot with the morning leader Morgan finding it tougher in the afternoon slipping back to 8th
