Over 70 golfers remembered former Brean member Keith Porter at the Boom Boom Cup played in his memory.

A superb back nine saw Garrett win the Super Series Bogey competition with a +5 score, one ahead of Phil Hodgson, who carded three mid-round birdies.

The Avalon League Division Five team won 4-1 on Sunday, while the seniors beat Tall Pines 5-1, and Barrie Tucker's nett 70 pipped playing partner Pete Dunn by one, after his disastrous 10 on the 12th. Pete Douglas was third on 72.
