GOLF: 12-month turnaround for Brean Division Six side
Updated 12:12pm Monday 30th June 2014 in Sport
WHAT a difference a year makes - with matches still to complete, the Brean Golf Club Division Six side have already scored more points than they managed in the whole of their dismal 2013 campaign.
Their latest success came at home against Frome as they won by four games to one.
The unbeaten run of Pete Barton and Dave Bradley was stretched to six games as they claimed a point - but the best win of the day came from Les Clutterbuck and John Cullinan who stood on the 12th tee five down, but managed to comeback to win their game at the final hole.
The Seniors team travelled to Oake Manor on Monday and went down by four games to two.
Alan Marshall and Mo Sanders were their only winners with two other games finishing level at the end.
Richard Triscott won the opening salvo of the new Super Series event with a stunning round of 45 points.
He was level par after 14 holes and despite dropping a few shots on the final few holes, was still three points clear of runner up Murray Parsons.
Third place went to John Mardon on countback ahead of Gordy Wheelaghan on 41 on a day of low scoring when the leading five players all saw their handicaps reduced.
On Sunday due to many players being involved in the various matches the event became a Pro Shop Stableford. The competition was won by Ian Adams with a score of 40 points ahead of Nigel Hodges on 38.
Super Series 1, Richard Triscott 45pts 2, Murray Parsons 42pts 3, John Mardon 41pts
Pro Shop Stableford 1, Ian Adams 40pts 2, Nigel Hodges 38pts 3, Mel Brown 37pts
