Sidmouth Charles Stanley Monday Eclectic success for Harrison Jones

Sadly, this week’s Charles Stanley Monday Stableford was disrupted by the first very poor weather for some weeks, writes John Barnard.

A few hardy seniors went out in the morning but in the main, they had to give in to the incessant pouring rain.

Later in the day, a few hardy souls (or mad idiots depending how you look at it) thought there was a window of opportunity to get out but this closed about half way round as the wet weather swept back in again.

Considering the conditions, the scores were very respectable. David Bater won with 38 points. With the weather getting worse, he birdied the 13th, hit his tee shot to six feet on the 15th for a two and then crucially, drove the green on the par four 17th to get another two. He was one shot ahead of Stuart Coles who played a solid round including two birdies which were enough to keep him ahead of Mike Knight on countback.

Mike was going well after a good start with two birdies in the first two holes, but a bogie on the last hole cost him at least one place.

In the Charles Stanley Monday Eclectic, Harrison Jones won the title on countback from Mike Knight.

Mike was one shot back going into the final day so braved the elements in a vain attempt to claw back Harrison and he did manage to improve by one shot on the front nine but crucially, he couldn’t improve on his back nine score so just lost out.

Nick Gingell was one shot back in third place.

Well played, Harrison, a nett 22 under par over the season!

We will have to wait until the clocks change in 2017 for the next season to begin, it could be a long winter!
