Saturday saw the Easterbrook Eaton Medal at Sidmouth Golf Club, writes John Barnard.

Monthly medals are played on the first Saturday of the month and the early starters saw the best of the weather.

Winning Division One by two shots, was Luke Sheppard. A steady opening nine including a two on the sixth was followed by two birdies on the back nine including another two on the 11th.

In second place was John Barnard who also recorded two, two’s. A very steady front nine was let down by an inconsistent back nine, but it was still enough to keep him ahead on countback from Harrison Jones who had an even better front nine and worse back nine!.

In the Second Division, Paul Renken continued his good run of form to record a nett 64, four better than the field. A steady round including eight pars and a birdie on the seventeenth meant a convincing victory.

You may also want to watch:

Pat McCormack was second with a nett 68 which ought to have been better except for a seven on the last which will have disappointed him.

There were two players with a nett 69, but Simon Jones got ‘the nod’ for third place based on a better back nine.
