Single Stableford Competition Round – Winter League.
Sponsored by Fitzpatrick’s Hyundai Garage, Tullamore.
Frost and fog was the reason for a depleted entry for last Sunday`s competition. The hardy numbers who did take to the course at least got their weekly game, albeit on temporary greens. The elements did`nt effect Gerard Kenny (16) too badly, as he posted 39pts to take first position on countback. Runner up also on 39 pts was Ballycommon’s James Mahon (18). The in-coming Captain showing some good form of late.
Friday nights Glow in the Dark Golf proved to be very successful. After playing in bitterly cold conditions everyone was glad of the warm mould wine and buffet back in the clubhouse. The well attended evening saw the presentation of Club Championship prizes. Derek Hannon and Joe Mann collected their trophys for the Singles Matchplay. Dan Cunningham and Niall Smyth were the Fourball Matchplay winners. Dan was also celebrating his birthday, and has now been officially inducted into the senior ranks. Liam Lynch was presented with his prize for winning the inaugural 9 Hole Championship, sponsored by Walsh Kealy Accountants. Consistancy was the key to his win, Liam just missing one of the 23 rounds.
The fourth round of the Winter League is next weekend`s fixture.
