  Garrett grabs Christmas glory at Brean  
 

STEWART Garrett was the final winner at Brean in 2020 as he rounded out the year by taking top spot in the Christmas Running Stableford.

The popular annual event was reduced to a members only competition this year and the wet weather then reduced it further to a nine hole stableford event.

Over 70 players entered over the duration with Garrett's 23 point return being head and shoulders above the rest. He enjoyed a 4 point advantage over four players, who like Garrett, compiled their prize winning scores on the opening day of the event. The countback rules were applied by the computer and second place went to Richard Fairchild ahead of Ian Rogers. Max Smith, one of the club's groundstaff, took 4th with Tony Richards having to settle for the final prize in 5th.

It was Steve Mason and Steve Martin who claimed the first silverware of 2021 as they won the New Years Trophy and the Deacon Trophy respectively. Mason enjoyed a superb best of the day nett 60 to take Division Two and with it the New Years award for the best score overall on the day. Martin ended with a nett 63 to scoop the Deacon Trophy for the leading Division Three player. For both players it was the second time they had claimed these Trophies with Martin being successful at the start of 2016 with Mason tasting victory 2 years previous to that.

With only two ball golf permitted, the COVID tier restrictions in place and the use of 10 temporary greens due to the frost a smaller than normal field took part in the competition which ran alongside the January Medal. Joining Mason and Martin as the other Divisional winner was Pete Barton who returned a nett 62 to secure the top flight. Barton had the smallest winning margin as Matt Haskins was only two behind him in the final Division One reckoning. Mason had three shots to spare over Club Captain Dave Morgan in the middle tier whilst Martin had the largest advantage with Dave Man finishing four shots shy of him.

Kevin Davies returned the leading score in Sunday's Pro Shop Stableford which also acted as the first event in the new month long Eclectic event. He accumulated a superb 43 points on his way to a 3 point success over Craig Wheelaghan. Wheelaghan, who was making his final appearance before returning to continue his studies at University in Liverpool, led home third placed man Murray Parsons by a solitary point. He was also two clear of his father Gordy who claimed the final prize after a back nine countback with Matt Haskins.
