GOLF: Sensational scoring in Brean Seniors Stableford

First published in Sport Latest

IN recent weeks 41 points would have been a winning score in most events at Brean, but not in the August Seniors Stableford.

Barry Fisher posted that score and didn't even end up in the top three such was the great scoring.

Leading the way with a massive 47 points was Colin Roberts but surprisingly his winning margin was only a single point from Mike Haskins, who chased him all the way with his 46 point return.

Barrie Yearsley was the third player to keep Fisher out of the prizes as his 42 point haul brought him third spot.

All four of these players 'enjoyed' healthy handicap reductions thanks to their morning's efforts.

The Seniors are coming to the end of their Summer of inter club matches and their latest match up was away to Cannington.

Despite an enjoyable day all round the result went the way of the hosts by four games to two.

Brean's winners were the Pete Lock/Jeremy Savill and Ken Rouse/Barry Fisher pairings.

The Seniors team also managed to get the victory in the annual Triangular match but only after the equivalent of a stewards inquiry.

It was originally believed that the Ladies had retained the Trophy but it was discovered that one of the scores had somehow been miscalculated by three points.

The Ladies thought they had 180 as a total score with the seniors on 178 but with those three points deducted they missed out to the most experienced team by a single point.

The main club had a disappointing day and brought up the rear on just 153.

Simon Baunton is no stranger to success in 2014 as he has already tasted victory in numerous events.

He added another win as he topped the pile in the Saturday’s Super Series Stableford with a 43 point return. His handicap is now down to 19 and it wouldn't be a surprise to see it fall further before the year is out.

Tony Richards took second ending just a single point shy of the winners total and Roger Phillips was third another point back.

The following day it was also Super Series action with afternoon starter Mark Hatfield producing the winning score of 41 points.

Runner up on 39 was Chris Payne ahead of Steve Mason in third.

Andy Thomas was the big winner in the Midweek Stableford as not only did he win with 39 points, one ahead of Steve Mason, he also scooped the healthy rollover two’s pot on offer.
