Sidmouth Jewellers success for Matt Bavington

The Sidmouth Jewellers Friday stableford had a new winner this week, writes John Barnard.

Matt Bavington started his golfing life at Sidmouth more than a few years ago as a junior and returned as a member a couple of years ago.

It’s taken him a little while to remember the quirks of the course, but he has had some good results, none better than this week though. Fifteen pars, two birdies and just the one bogie on the tenth (that will have irritated him!) was a wonderful, consistent round of golf.

As a medal score, it was a one under par gross 65, but the competition is a stableford so he amassed an excellent 43 points.

In second place with 41 points was Andy Pryke. He had an inconsistent start, but then started playing steadily, picking up three pointers consistently on the back nine and he could have threatened Matt’s score except he ‘blobbed’ the 15th!

This still earnt him a two shot reduction, a good reward for a great round. In third place was club manager Jonathan Lee with the sort of round that will have driven him mad!

Six birdies, five bogies and par for the last two holes when he would have hoped to at least birdie one of them. However, it was still good enough to ‘wrack up’ 40 points.
