The Michelmores medal was well contested at Sidmouth, writes Chris Roberts.
Division One was won by Lewis Perry with a sublime round of golf of driving into fairways, iron onto green and two putts giving him a gross score of 67 net 63.
Lewis was my playing partner for the day and on several occasions I did point out golf is much more fun playing in the trees and the rough and it gets a bit boring just hitting the ball straight!
The ever-present John Jones finished second with a level round of 66 and lowest gross net 64.
Mr Jones sees his handicap down to one-point-seven!

In hot pursuit was Lester Wilmington with the lowest gross score of 81 net 69. Third spot went surprisingly to myself, Mr over golfed, with a net 70.
In Division Three only three players started and, with two completing their cards, the medal goes to Charlie Ralls with a net score of 74.
Second place went to Paul Shoobridge with a net 77 whilst third place would have gone Ken Mylne if he had completed his card!
