Castle Barna Golf Club. 5th November

The second round of the Winter League took place last weekend. On a cold but bright Sunday Stephen Harte (12) ignored an internal cut to claim the overall win with a fine return of 42pts. In second place was Robert Hogan (4) who shot a fine one over par round worth 39pts. With the first two in the overall positions, David O’ Connell (9) was able to collect the Div 1 prize with 36pts but only after a tie break. Div 2 went to early riser Tony Curley (14) with 37pts. A new name in the prizes was James Casey (16) who won Div 3 with 39pts, only being denied second place after a countback. Ballinagar`s Tom Ballesty (27) was best in Div 4 with 36pts. The previous week saw Bracknagh`s Dermot Kiernan (23) claim his first win after scoring 42 Pts in the first round of the Winter League. There was a three way tie on 40 Pts for the remaining positions which had to be decided on countback, with David Brazil (2) edging out Derek Hannon (+1) for the runner up spot, with Joe Mann having to settle for fourth.
