The perfect blend of youth and experience from the Jones family combined to collect victory in Saturday's Super Series Scramble at Brean Golf Club.
Millie and Zak Jones provided the youth whilst Eric added the wise old head to the winning scorecard of nett 52 which saw them finish two clear of the field.
A countback was required for the runners-up prize and Martin Kennelly, Sid Smith and Nathan Pickering secured it with the better back nine.
That left Scott Miles, Neil Barker and Trevor Pitt to take third with their score of 54 ahead of three teams on 55.
Another countback was needed to determine the final prize winners with John Ham, Barrie Tucker and Pete Dunn getting the verdict courtesy of the lowest back nine score of those three teams with 55s.
Zak featured in the winner's enclosure for the second time in two days completing the weekend double and won his third consecutive Super Series event.
He posted a superb 46 stableford points which included an amazing 27 points on the back nine.
