The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the greens looked good for the latest action for the Honiton seniors’ section, writes Andy Wagner.

So what more could a senior golfer want? A few good scores would help!

Most of the 76 who took to the course in the Ken Fordie Memorial Cup found it very difficult.

Fortunately there were a few exceptions. In Division One Malcolm Matthews came out on top with a score of 37 points followed by Mike Ward 35 points and Paul Ritchie, John Discombe and Ron Graham all with 34 points.

In Division Two Malcolm Conway showed the way with the top score of the day on 40 points. As this was his first competition he unfortunately was not eligible for the cup but kept first prize. It did cost him two strokes off his handicap however!

The winner of the cup was second place, king of the shorts, John Vessey with 38 points. Bob Milton and Alan Bacon were next with 36 points and David Lavender took the remaining prize with 35 points.

Only two twos were recorded giving Angus Falconer and John Pawley a bumper haul of 25 balls each.
