Class with a pinch of Salz

The annual Yelverton Salz Trophy competition was held this week and attracted 36 ladies for this stableford competition, which is held over two consecutive days. Two rounds each of 18 holes are played and the winner receives the Salz Trophy, which was donated by Bunty Salz (Lady Captain in 1965) while the runner-up receives the Emerson Cup. Final placings weren’t decided until the last players on the last day had finished and it was Verna Isaac who pushed Lauren Chapman all the way only to miss out by one point. The Salz winner, Lauren Chapman, scored a great combined total of 73 points and owed much of her success to a ‘demo’ driver she was trying out. Needless to say that Lauren has now added it to her arsenal of clubs. Portraying strength and determination after a recent fractured left wrist Verna clinched the runners-up spot and the Emerson Cup.
