Seventy-two Honiton seniors met to contest a better ball competition, where only one score from the team of three was to count, writes John Pawley.
Playing off three-quarters of their handicap did challenge some competitors, but in the final outcome it seemed that 43 was a good number.
All four teams in the prizes achieved that total, so countback had to be invoked to get the places correct.
Careful checking revealed that John Fleetwood, Eric Short and Rod Armitage came fourth, Alan Pollock, Jim Wallis and Tony Proudfoot were third, and Mike Sennitt, Steve Butcher and Bill Eaton came second.
This all left the winning team being the one of Max Pipe, Brian Smith and John Pawley who were grateful for the four points achieved by Brian at the 15th.
