Sidmouth Upper Crust stableford success once again for Jeremy Holden
- Credit: Archant
There is a sense of déjà vu about this week’s Upper Crust Monday Stableford, writes John Barnard.
Jeremy Holden won for the second week in succession and is now fast approaching single figures as his handicap continues to fall.
Nothing spectacular about this week’s performance. Starting late in the day he only had the one birdie (a two on the fifth).
Other than that, solid golf with few one pointers and plenty of three point holes.
He only just scored enough points though as Harrison Jones scored the same, but lost on countback.
You may also want to watch:
Showing a welcome return to form, Harrison blitzed out on the front nine with four birdies (unfortunately offset by five bogies!) he played a more solid back nine with five pars and a birdie, but a ‘blob’ on hole 14 cost him a win. John Jones was third with 37 points. John’s handicap has been going a little north this season and three bogies in the first three holes didn’t bode well, but then three birdies and nine pars steadied the ship.
As at last Monday, Kevin Legg was still leading by one point from Jeremy Holden, but this week’s result may change the table.
