The Sidmouth Jeweller’s Friday Stableford provides some familiar names at the top, writes George Carr.

Craig Melluish, with an excellent 41 points tops the list with Howard Cushing two points behind on 39 and the omni-present Mark Thomas in third place with 38.

Pat McCormack, playing off eight, finished in fourth place and started with five straight (agricultural?) bogies, but an eagle-three at the 13th and birdies at 16 and 18 put him back on track, eventually!

Saturday’s B Team match at home to Axe Cliff was lost in the mist and on Sunday only a small field contested the weekly stableford competition which was won by D Platten with a modest 35 points with Moray Bosence in second with an even more modest 30 points.

However, it is evident that Moray was simply keeping his powder dry for the Charles Stanley competition on Monday, where, faced with a huge field of seventy, among which some of the club’s very best golfers were listed, he carded a very impressive 42 points to take first spot.

Martin Geddis claimed second place from Steve Milton on count back, both on 39 points and pressing had behind them, Duncan Taylor on 38 points must have played to level par or better of his handicap of two; but then, I suspect he often does. Well played everyone!
