The May Stableford was held at East Devon on Saturday 19 May, writes Paul Willoughby.
Conditions in the morning were almost as good as they get – sunshine and hardly a breath of wind so no excuses (such as a howling gale or blizzard) for poor play.
One hundred and sixteen players took part and not surprisingly the scoring was high. The leading scorer was Jerry Roberts in Division Two with a stunning 42 points which, quite rightly, has seen his handicap cut to 9.5.
However, credit must be given to the leading low handicappers in Division One who scored magnificently; the shot of the day came from Cubby Tinsley whose tee shot on the 10th hit the hole only to bounce out! He still got his birdie.
In Division One, Jacob (Cubby) Tinsley, 40 points from a handicap of two, took top spot with Leigh Jones, also 40 points second on count back with a handicap of six.
Bob Martin with 38 points, also from a handicap of two, was third. There were six players on 37, but on count back Robin Murray came fourth with 37 points from a handicap of three.
Division Two was won by Jerry Roberts with 42 points from a handicap of 10. Gordon Browne (surely I know that name from somewhere?) with 39 points from a handicap of 13 was second.
There were four players on 36, but on count back Ian Peacock came third with 36 points from a handicap of 12.
In Division Three there were three players with 38 points, but Jeremy Browne came first on count back from a handicap of 15. Second was Keith Luff (18) and third was Neil Jones (14).
There was a 2’s pot of £172 to be shared between 16 players.
