WOODFORD Golf Club played its February medal at the weekend where Bill Tyzack returned to form with a fine victory.

Local surveyor Tyzack managed to accumulate 38 points in Division One, with the medal played as a stableford competition, as a winter experiment.

Tyzack won on a count back from Colin Hunt, while captain Mark Deeming played to handicap with 36 points in third place.

In Division Two, builder David Warden constructed a winning 39 points, two clear of John Raine, with South African Eion Botha third with 36.

"A great character, Deric will be sorely missed at the club," said a club spokesperson.
