The ninth Sidmouth Jewellers Friday stableford had a strong field, no doubt due to the bank holiday weekend, writes John Barnard
The course is looking fantastic now and the greens are running well so no excuses for a bad score.
The winner was Mark Pavey by three shots with an excellent 43 points. Off his 16 handicap, he played steadily with the occasional par and a birdie on the tenth.
However, he finished birdie, birdie so seven points in the last two holes to ensure the win
In second place was club manager Jonathan Lee who has run into form after a poor start to his year. Never birdie the first they say but Jonathan did, but then nothing much happened until he ‘blobbed’ the tenth.

This seemed to stir him into action and he then had a run of four birdies from the thirteenth to end up with 40 points. A further three points back was Bruce Harcourt on 37.
In the Sidmouth Jewellers Friday Night league David Burgess maintained his lead of eleven points currently with 42 without playing.
