Brean Golf Club latest
2:30pm Thursday 5th July 2012 in Sport
PETE Douglas was the clear winner of the June Seniors Medal at Brean Golf Club following his superb net 66.
His margin of victory was eventually six shots but it would have only been two if Mike Allen had signed his card before handing in his net 68.
As he failed to do so, he was disqualified and the runners-up spot went to Pat Mullholland on 72.
Mullholland’s back nine score then relegated Colin Roberts into third position on countback after he also had a net 72.
The Seniors team kept up their winning ways in their first home match over the new layout.
Near-neighbours Weston-super-Mare were the visitors in what was the return fixture of the one aborted at Weston by the wet weather seven days earlier. The home side just shaded a close and enjoyable game by a 4-3 margin.
The Avalon League Division 2 side made the trip to the centre of Taunton to take on Vivary Park on Saturday in their latest league encounter.
A couple of the Brean pairs found the tight confines of the treelined course not to their liking and this, combined with good home play, saw two heavy losses.
Brean did manage to pick up a couple of wins which gave them some valuable league points as they maintain their challenge at the top of the table.
The Ladies hosted Taunton Vale in an inter-club match at the weekend. The weather wasn’t at its kindest and the game ended in defeat for the home side by 2.5-1.5.
It was a close finish in the latest round of the Super Series with Phil Aspinall coming out on top of a threeway tie for 37 points.
Ian Adams returned to form in second place whilst Clive Goode took third.
Both Brean professionals didn’t enjoy the best of fortunes in the Microsoft Masters event at Bowood in Wiltshire last week.
Andrew March enjoyed an improved performance which moved him up the final standings. His colleague, David Haines, had a day to forget in his second round and slid down the leaderboard.
