Ali Mawby became the first woman to win a Saturday competition for some time when she turned in a top effort to take the first round of the Burns Philp Cup.
The new club member - playing off a 46 handicap - showed she wasn't overawed playing with the men by amassing 45 stableford points after shooting 109 off the stick, which include a chip-in two at No 2.
Remarkably this was only just good enough as she won on countback from Aaron Kotua, who recorded one of his best ever rounds, a 76 off the white tees, to also end with 45 points. The 13 handicapper at least had the satisfaction of walking away with a lucrative jackpot after twos at No 11 and 14.
His brother Keri was also in sublime form shooting an even par 72 playing off a three handicap, capped off by a 20 foot putt for an unlikely up and down par on the difficult No 18. His 39 points saw him finish third.
Next were Brendan Doyle (36) and the quartet of Andy Isle, Jasper Broad-Kolff, Bryan Ramsey and Chris Louth on 35 points apiece.
Steve Turnell (34) and Dean Goodman (33) rounded off the top ten.
The other to score a two was Warwick King.
Next Saturday (Dec 24) is the second round of the Penketh Plate, which is a net round off the blue tees.
