Barton and Bradley in perfect harmony
9:00am Sunday 3rd November 2013 in Sport Latest
DAVE Bradley and Pete Barton combined perfectly to win the Pairs Aggregate Stableford competition at Brean Golf Club on Saturday.
Both players scored 38 points which were some of the joint best individual scores of the day. The winners only enjoyed a one-point winning margin, though.
Another player with 38, the in-form Tom Broom, paired up with club champion and his cousin, Dan Broom, who returned just one fewer. Another 38-point scorer, John Mardon, was complimented by 32 from Tony Groves as they were awarded third spot with a total of 70.
The following day, in the opening round of the Winter League, John Cullinan produced a stunning round of golf to post 42 points in the gale force winds as the storm brewed.
He triumphed by six over Kevin Davies, who couldn’t quite make it a hat-trick of Sunday wins. Cullinan was 10 points clear of third place finisher Roger Phillips as the majority of the field struggled to reach 30.
Ken Ponter won the last round of the Eclectic on a soggy Tuesday morning with a nett 73. He beat Tony Roper on countback over the back nine while Pete Douglas was third one shot further back.
With the scores from the final round added to the previous rounds, Ponter ended up as the joint winner with John Sherwood as they both finished with nett scores of 55 over the five rounds.
The last of the Summer Knockout Finals have been decided over the last couple of weeks with Eamonn Wynne defeating Stuart Wills to win the Ian Ross Trophy for Division 1 players and with it becomes the current holder of both the Summer and Winter Singles titles at Brean.
Murray Parsons and Ian Adams won the Brean Down Trophy for the third time as a partnership after beating club captain Brian Read and Phil Hodgson in the final by 2&1.
