Holders Martin White and Bob Webber retained the Streatham Trophy this year at Sidmouth in dramatic fashion, writes George Carr.
Martin White chipped in for a birdie at the last to hold off strong contenders Will Hastie and Moray Bosence and win the trophy for the fourth time and for the second consecutive year.
White’s grand finish left the holders a point clear with a score of 43 points to add to their previous 44 points from the first leg.
Hastie and Bosence with 43 points from each leg can congratulate themselves on a fine performance.
The best score on the day, however, was the 44 points recorded by Neil Bunting and Lee Wenham which helped to secure them third place 40 - 44 in front off Craig Melluish and Steve Milton 42 - 42 who finished fourth.

All of the above must have trembled to hear of a remarkable score of 47 points handed in by Roger Freer and Bob Skelly which would have put them right in the mix, but sadly they had signed for a wrong score and were thus disqualified - oh dear!

Mervyn Baker triumphed on the day with 40 points and it might be hoped he will be playing off a more suitable handicap in the summer to come - should there be any (summer that is)!
In second place with 39 points came George Baker and Mary Bathard was third on 38 points - well played everyone!
