The May Medal and Warn Cup were played at East Devon on the first Saturday of May writes Paul Willoughby.
The Warn Cup was presented to the club in 1921 and is awarded to the best player on the day through all three divisions.
This year the convincing winner was Danny Barrett with an impressive score of 66 from a handicap of 12 which included 9 pars and a birdie on the 2nd hole – always a pleasure with that difficult 4 tier green
There was a strong cold south easterly wind and conditions were not easy (you can tell this article is being written by someone who didn’t play well!) so all credit to Danny and the others who got the better of the course.
There were 89 players that competed with Jim Colvin beating the field in the Division One. Playing off a handicap of three, Jim, with carded a net 68, this with the lowest gross score of 71.
Robert Dance finished second with net 69 (5) and Bob Cummins took third after count back was used to determine the minor placings as he too had a net 69 (9).
In Division Two Danny Barrett, with a net 66 from a handicap of 12, now 10.5, took first place.
