The Sidmouth Jewellers Friday stableford was won this week by former club captain John Rockey with 38 points, writes John Barnard.

It’s only a couple of months ago that he had an exceptional increase to his handicap as he had been struggling with form for some time.

Since then, his game has come back into synch and he has managed a number of good results, none better than Friday. Birdies on holes two and ten were offset by a couple of double bogies but he played steadily over the rest and now looks set for the rest of the year on a handicap of 10.

However, it was only just good enough!

Andy Pryke, winner in both the previous two weeks’ meetings, carded the same score as John, but came second on countback. Andy also had two birdies, including the difficult ninth hole and looked set for a third triumph until he suffered a ‘no score’ on the 17th.
