  Golfers back on course at Brean  

COMPETITIVE golf returned to Brean on Saturday as restrictions had lifted following the second National Lockdown.

Official 'club' competitions have been suspended for the rest of the year due to the fact that many of the club members are based in tier 3. As they are adhering to the government advice about not travelling to the Tier 2 area Sedgemoor to play golf at Brean the Club Committee decided it was only right to delay them.

Despite the steady morning rain a good number of players still took to the course in the Pro Shop Stableford. No one in the reached the 40 point mark with two players returning scores of 39 points leading the way. A back nine countback saw Paul Jones start life with a World Handicap System index with a win as he defeated Pete Barton on a countback. A closing birdie 4 saw the 2014 Club Captain home in an impressive 22 points, 3 more than Barton, to secure the victory.

The Jones surname also featured in third spot as Paul's niece Millie continued where she left off before Lockdown with another round under her handicap as 38 points brought her third spot. Jamie Howson marked his competition debut at Brean with 37 point haul and this collected him the 4th and final prize on the day.

Lee Vaughan took the spoils in Sunday's Pro Shop Stableford event as he scored a very impressive 41 points to win by 3 points. Vaughan made his score on the homeward run with 23 points being added to his total after the turn and take him to victory.

The runners up spot was decided after a countback with Aaron Puddy and Neil Barker both posting that score. Left hander Puddy had two steady halves of 19 points and that was enough to relegate Barker to third spot after their back nines were compared.

The countback rules had a full workout as three players needed to be separated to decide the final two prizes. Greenkeeper Max Smith, Millie Jones and Pro Shop Assistant Josh Heseltine-Smith all handed in 37 points and it was 1 handicapper Heseltine-Smith who got the verdict for 4th in his first competition since joining the Pro Shop team at Brean. Millie Jones kept up her fine run of form and took the final prize of the day ahead of the unlucky Smith who just missed out.
