On Saturday, the competition at Sidmouth Golf Club was the monthly medal, sponsored by Bater Removals, writes John Barnard.

Owner Nick Bater, past captain of the club, has been consistent in his support over the years and it makes a huge difference when sponsors are prepared to put their support behind club events.

For no obvious reason, scores were relatively low this week across the board, but the Division One players made the most of the conditions. In Division One, Lee Wenham continued his good form with a nett 65, winning on countback from Terry Jones who can’t seem to stop playing really well at present.

It was a consistent round by Lee, one double bogie on the eighth but all pars and bogies otherwise.

It was a similar story for Terry, no birdies just fourteen pats and four bogies but Lee’s slightly higher handicap meant he picked up the win through his ‘nett’ effort.

David Burgess was third, winning on countback from Moray Bosance and Mark Thomas, an eagle on the thirteenth made the difference.

In Division Two, John Rockey won on countback from club vice captain Richard Powell.

Both had nett 67’s, but Richard had a good start with two birdies on the front nine but then let it slip with a number of bogies coming back to let John just slip ahead of him with his better back nine.

Terry O’Brien was third with a nett 68, again winning on countback this time from Steve Channing.

In Division Three, Adrian Baldwin won with a nett 67, again getting his win based on countback from Dan Churchill. Adrian had a slow start but then off his handicap of 19, a series of pars on the back nine and nothing worse than bogie kept him ahead. Third was Mark Bathard with a nett 68.

There were thirteen twos scored on the day, each netting the lucky golfer £4!
