Brean Golf Club held their Seniors Texas Scramble on Tuesday and Keith Sargent, David Hunter and Mick Norris set a pace that no other team could match.

Conditions were sweltering early on but by mid-round the wind had changed and the leading trio took full advantage to post a nett 55.

They set the early clubhouse target and held onto top spot as all the other teams completed their rounds.

Graham Exton, Jeff Milton and Vincent Ford were the ones to come closest to toppling them but their nett 56 only gave them runners-up spot and that was only after a countback with Brian Read, Mel Brown and seniors captain John Cranley who took third. 

Fresh from a playing lesson with Andrew March on Wednesday afternoon, Cranley produced a stunning round to win the Seniors Stableford as well as the Over-65s Shield that ran alongside it. 

He needed just 74 strokes to navigate the course and this equated to 44 points and the overall and Division One win.

On a day of good scoring three players all scored 41 points in second spot, as Bob Preedy got the nod on the back nine countback over Barry Fellows and Brian Read.
