Kevin Davies and Neil Barker finished top of the shop in the June Monthly Stableford at Brean.

The duo both scored 41 points to win Divisions Two and Three respectively, as Barker enjoyed the largest winning margin of all some five points better off than runner-up Barrie Tucker.

Mike Hurman was third on countback while Davies, armed with new custom-fitted irons, had a single point advantage over Tony Aimson, who was two clear of in-form Dave Mann and Mel Brown.

Club champion Dan Broom warmed up nicely for the defence of his title next weekend by claiming the Division One award with 40 points, three clear of Pete Barton with Adam Cox third on 35.

It was a weekend win double for Davies as he added a Sunday Super Series victory to his Stableford win of 24 hours earlier.

Fourth place went to John Ham (42), with Mike Bromley scoring 41 in his first competition since joining the club to end up fifth.
