Sidmouth seniors success for David Fish

The annual Sidmouth seniors’ medal and putting competition was held at the club in the continuing damp weather, but the sun kept the rain away for all but few unlucky players, writes Hugh Dorliac.
Nevertheless, the prevailing damp conditions made the course a little difficult with slower greens and balls not travelling as far as normal in the wet grass.
Scoring in the medal was therefore mixed, but several creditable scores were vying for the top spot before a superb four under par nett score of 62 was recorded by recent new member David Fish as the last few groups came in.
The minor placings were all on nett 68 and second, on countback, was Chris Ashley, followed by Alan Billinghurst and Les Pratt.
The putting element of the competition was to record the number of putts taken during the round.

Again countback decided the winner - Alan Billinghurst from Chris Ashley who both recorded an excellent 27 putts.
A bottle of scotch was the welcome prize in the ‘nearest the pin’ on the downhill 12th, won by Chris Grubb.
