2:00pm Thursday 6th September 2012 in Sport Latest
LEE Trumper produced a stunning nett 63 to claim top spot in the Monthly Medal at Brean on Saturday. His score left him well clear of the chasing pack in Divsion One and also edged his handicap close to single figures. Stuart Wills was second after a countback with Murray Parsons on 67.
Pat Mullholland has been in good form of late and this continued as he won the Division Three Medal with a nett 68 from Ian Adams on 70. Pete Dunn was Division Two's winner after his level par nett 70 with Dave Lockwood one stroke further back. Shelia Rouse was the winner of the Ladies Medal.
The final Avalon League match of the season was completed by the Division Six team at Brean on Saturday as they secured their position in the same league next year with a 3.5 - 1.5 win over Stockwood Vale.
Invitation Day on Sunday was won by Murray Parsons and his son Matt Parsons who was his guest for the day. They accumulated an impressive 44 points between them in the betterball Stableford format and finished 6 points clear of the second placed pairing who were John Cullinan and Sam Ferris. A three way countback was needed for third spot with Mark Parsons and Pete Lismore shading it on the back nine score.
Roy Baker cleaned up the Individual Stableford event which ran alongside it by winning with 39 points and also scoring the only two of the day to take that pot as well Barrie Yearsley was the winner of the Seniors Monthly Medal with a nett score of 70 last Tuesday.
The consistent Yearsley held a three stroke advantage over the rest of the field which was lead by the popular Ken Ponter who took second position with his nett 73. Two days later the Seniors suffered a rare defeat at home to their bogey team Woodspring as they went down by 1.5 to 4.5, which was also the score when the two sides met in Bristol earlier in the year.
Brean's David Haines made the long but ultimately worthwhile trip to Falmouth Golf Club to play in their Pro Am last week. He was invited to play by a team of amateurs and he finished in a tie for 2nd spot after a 1 under par score of 70. This week both he and Andrew March compete in the Race to Woodbury Park event which concludes the West Region PGA Order of Merit.
