The first Saturday in April means the return of the monthly medal, sponsored this month by Easterbrook Eaton Limited, writes John Barnard.

It was a cold and windy start so the early players had the worst of the conditions but it soon warmed up. Of course, players can choose when the play, but some of the early birds were off to St James’s Park after lunch, to watch Exeter City beat their great rivals, Plymouth Argyle.

A winning goal in injury time meant the early start was more than worth the effort.

Winning Division One was Nick Gingell with an excellent net 67. A consistent round looked like it was slipping away after a double bogey on sixteen but a birdie on the last into a strong head wind, gave him a two shot win. In second place on countback was Steve Milton with a nett 69.

After struggling on the front nine, a much more consistent back nine will have pleased him. Graham Davies was third with a consistent round except for a double bogey on the 15th which cost him a place.

You may also want to watch:

In Division Two, Sean Murphy played the round of the day, a nett 61. He blitzed the front nine and only five dropped shots in the last 4 holes prevented a sub 60 round. In second place was Keith Newton with an excellent nett 63. Six pars on the front nine was the key to his score, while on the back nine, he kept playing pretty much to his handicap. Simon Jones was third on countback with a nett 66.

Finally, in Division Three, David Ash won with a nett 70 with two excellent pars on 14 and 16 gaining him the win. Keith White was second scoring a nett 71 and in third place was Adrian Baldwin with a nett 73.
