Double celebration for Brean Golf Club's Pete Dunn
1:30pm Thursday 14th June 2012 in Sport
PETE Dunn struck gold on Sunday as he overcame a final hole stumble to collect both the Monthly Medal and the EGU Gold Medal at Brean.
He needed a four to post a stunning net 63 but some 10 minutes and a trip out of bounds later an eight was marked down but his net 67 still proved to be the best of the day.
With it he edged out Craig Wheelaghan into second in Division Three and another junior Charlie Huggins into second spot overall.
Huggins did however take the Division Two prize though for his net 68 which was two better than Wally Pape.
Club champion Roy Baker was another to survive a disaster hole during his round as he bounced back from a quadruple bogey nine at the seventh to beat his handicap by a single stroke. This gave him a two stroke winning margin over Jason Kidley in Division One.
It was a busy week of inter club matches for the various club sides and three of the four games ended with positive results for Brean. Most impressive of the bunch was the 5-0 whitewash at home of Enmore Park by the Division Two Avalon League team.
This result strengthened their strong position at the top of the table. The club's mixed team almost matched that result but only took a point from their counterparts.
The seniors managed to fit in their re-arranged game against Minehead Warreners at home last week and came home victors by a comfortable four games to two. The only team to taste defeat was the Avalon League Division Six side. They lost 3-2 at Wheathill but the whole result rested on one game and one putt on the final hole but unfortunately for Brean the putt didn't drop.
Players found conditions tough in Saturday's Super Series round but Chef Andy Chan found the recipe for success carding 34 points to win by one from Ron Vine.
