John Connolly Autos Single Stableford.

Castle Barna Golf Club. 5th February 2017. Single Stableford.

Last weekends competition was a Single Stableford sponsored by John Connolly Autos. (Happy birthday John). Scoring was modest in the cold but dry conditions.

It proved to be a memorable outing for Tom Ballesty (26), the Ballinagar man capturing his first ever outright win with 38 points. Runner up was Ollie Scally (17) with 36 points. The big O`s effort capturing two prizes on the day as he doubled up his entry to include the Ballycommon Society`s outing, even though he played off the wrong tees! Third place went to Ger Kenny (16) on 36 points. Ger would have finished higher but his score was subject to an internal cut.

Next Sunday is the quarter finals of the Fitzpatrick Garage Winter League. In a change to previous years the qualifiers will play in a normal three ball. The best score in the group scores 3 points for their team, 2 points for second best score and one point for third. When all scores are added up the top four teams will advance to the semi finals. Count backs will be used in the event of ties, it could be a busy evening for the stewards.
