Club vice-captain Richard Powell won the Sidmouth Jewellers Friday stableford with a convincing four point victory, writes John Barnard.

Due to the lack of rain, the course is very dry so the ball runs a long way (not always a good thing) and the greens have become much quicker.

The greens staff chose to add to the challenge with some very ‘interesting’ pin positions.

Richard didn’t have the best of starts, but a birdie on the fourth and then a solid 21 points on the back nine sealed his win with 38 points.

Proving the difficulty on this particular day, Jonathan Lee was second with only 34 points, matched by four other players but Jonathan’s back nine gave him the edge.

You may also want to watch:

A double bogie on 12 didn’t help but a number of pars and two birdies proved sufficient. It edged him in front of Mark Thomas, chair of greens whom we held accountable for the pin positions! It didn’t help Mark though, a double bogie on 14 and one less birdie cost him.

In the order of merit, David Burgess maintained his solid lead and is now on 95 points, 18 ahead of Graham Davies on 77 points with Kevin Legg moving back into third spot with 65 points.
