The main talking point of the Honiton seniors’ September Medal was the hole-in-one achieved by our president Max Pipe on the second hole, writes Ann Desmoulins.
This, together with some other sparking golf, enabled him to record a nett 65 and to be presented with the tankard for winning the competition.
A mighty close second was Peter Clarke, who also carded a nett 65, but was edged into second place on countback.
Third was Phil Faulkner with a nett 68 and fourth was John Fleetwood, also with a 68, but again, edged out on countback.
In Division Two, the winner was Fred Thomas with a nett 67.
Second was Bob Cockett with a nett 69, third was Robert Canterbury with a nett 70 and fourth was Brian Hoepelman with a 71.
There were five twos recorded and scored by Ron Jones and Mike Stroud on the second, by David Scott on the seventh, Peter Clarke on the 11th, and, with two superb shots on the par four 12th hole, by Peter Blake.
Of course, there were another two twos for Max [Pipe] for his hole-in-one. Each two was worth six balls.
The latest Honiton Tuesday Mixed format was an American Foursomes.
Thirty-two players took part and the clear winners, with an impressive score of 45 points, were Sarah Dawe and John Frith.
Heather Clarke and Stan Squire took second place with 42 points and Elizabeth Ward and Phil Wall came third with 40 points.
Fourth place went to Andrea Squire and Peter Clarke with 36 points.
