The Sidmouth Jeweller’s Friday night league was won this week by Lester Willmington, writes John Barnard.

He dropped his usual playing partner to play with his son, clearly a good move!

He didn’t do much going out and was holding it together on the back nine, but then consecutive two’s on holes 14 and 15 (both shot holes) clearly kick start his round and earn the win.

It was just as well Lester scored well on the back nine as he only won on countback from Craig Melluish, despite Craig scoring a hole-in-one on the 11th!

Having also just birdied the 10th, Craig would have been looking at a good score, but a hole-in-one can be distracting, and he let it slip over the last few holes only scoring five points in the last five holes.

Greg Willmington was clearly inspired by his father’s play to score 37 points and take third place.

Again two bogies on the last two holes cost him.
