A large field contested the Brean Golf Club May Medal on Saturday and they found the course in great condition and the weather conditions favourable.

The Read family certainly found them to their liking as Brian Read produced a superb round which totalled a nett 60 when everything was added up.

This was by far the best score of the day and it also saw him claim the Medal for Division Two by six strokes.

The runner up was his son Jeff making it a Read 1-2 as he defeated Pete Dunn on a countback to claim the second prize.

The closest challenger overall to Read's stunning round was Dave Bradley. Bradley found his way to the winners enclosure for the second time in just six days after winning the previous Sunday's competition.

His nett 65 secured top spot in the Third Division one clear of Dave Glasby with John Rabbetts placing third on 68.

Dan Broom and Lee Vaughan both returned nett 66s in Division One. A countback over the closing nine was required with Broom just getting the verdict over Vaughan.

Third place went to Scott Lismore after another countback between a trio of 68s that were posted.

Some excellent scoring was produced in Sunday's Super Series Betterball Stableford with two scores topping the 50 point barrier.

Leading the way was Pete Dunn and John Ham who posted 52 points. Interestingly their card was marked by Mike Hurman who completed the double win of marker of the victors' scorecard as he also supplied the pencil to Brian Read's winning score a day earlier!

Just missing out on the final green to match the winning number was Nathan Pickering and Les Byrne.

They had to settle for 51 points and second spot on the day. Third place was claimed by Tony Higgins and Sid Smith who combined to score 47.

The 2022 staging of the Husband and Wife greensomes went the way of the Cranleys.

Seniors Captain John and his good lady, the current Lady Captain, Bev, racked up a superb half century of stableford points in the sunshine to take the title.

Defending Champions Mike and Carole Short were second on 43 with Steve and Gail Mason just one point further back in third.
