The East Devon senior’s competition this Monday was the annual match between two teams representing the senior’s captain and the vice-captain, fighting for the aptly named Moxon Fossil trophy, writes Mike Knapton.

Although this meant to be a friendly and fun event there were rewards for those who had done well (did I mention fun in respect of golf!)

The format allowed for a four-ball better-ball competition and also had nearest the pin prizes on the four par three’s.

Several teams had in excess of 36 points playing off three-quarter handicaps. Amongst those were Charles Collins and Philip Prince with 42 points.

They were beaten by an incredible score of 44 points by Graham Briggs and Rod Ford.

Nearest the pins were Mike Knapton (fourth), Martin Bright (eighth), Mike Moore (10th) and Keith Ward (13th).

A good day was had by all and, oh yes, vice-captain Norman Forte’s team lost to the team led by Robin Grenyer by a score of seven matches to six with the day decided on the last match!
