The second Honiton Seniors Open of the year, a Texas Scramble, was held on the first Friday of July with around 150 competitors from over 20 clubs making up the three-man teams, writes John Pawley.

Conditions were good for golf, with the course in excellent condition, and the weather continuing to be fine.

At the end of the day club president Max Pipe presented the overall winners prize to the Bigbury team of Michael Fulton, Eric Harris and Richard Adcock with their score of 58.6.

In the visitors’ section, the team from Fingle Glen came out on top with 60.9, ahead of those from Teignmouth (61.3) and Weymouth (62.1), with Tavistock (62.4) fourth. Winners of the Honiton member’s section were the team of Peter Morgan, Vic Wood and Phil Deacon with 59.6 followed by Phil Faulkner, Eric Short and David Armstrong with 59.7.

Third were the Larry Goodliffe, John Locke and Duncan Hepburn group (59.9) ahead of Alex Neil, Alan Devenny and George Smith (62.7).
