The Sidmouth Jeweller’s Friday Night League meeting was won this week by Steve Crabb who has hit form in recent weeks and after Friday’s fine round, achieved his lowest ever exact handicap, writes John Barnard.

It was an interesting performance. He dispensed with his driver in the locker room (misbehaving apparently) and was content to smash his three wood.

A good front nine of 21 points including birdies on holes two and six meant he was well placed.

Another two birdies on holes 10 (a little fortuitous, a thinned second shot was hurtling to the back of the green when it struck Dr Hassle’s ball, jumped a foot in the air and stopped inches from the hole) and 11, meant he walked onto the 12th tee with 28 points.

A hook flew on the wind on 14 so his ball was never to be seen again so he had to settle for 40 points.

Nick Gingell was late out and scored 37 points for third place.

A good front nine was spoilt by a no score on four and a bogie on the last maybe cost him a place. There were seven two’s, worth almost six pounds each.
