Single Stableford Competition
Sunday 20th March 2016

Expert, Tullamore Single Stableford

There was great delight when Patrick Guinan (28) was declared the winner of last weekends competition. The Kilcormack man is an ever present each Sunday, and while his results have not been notable in the past, he always enjoys his round of golf. He finally put that record straight with an excellent 42 pts to claim his first ever outright win, a victory for peserverence. In the runner up position was David Hughes (23). The ex fire fighter scorched his way around the course to also post 42pts, only beaten for what would have been his first ever victory on a countback.
In Division 1 Shane Daly (5) making his first appearance in a while showed no signs of rustiness to win with 40pts. Ballinagar`s Brendan Scally (14) after intensive training with his arrows on Friday night came out on top in Div 2 with 40pts. Another 40pts claimed Div 3 for Trevor Wright (18). This was with an internal cut of -3 which meant that Trevor`s actual score on the day, 43pts, was good enough for him to win the “free sub” competition. A substantial saving on his golfing expenses in the year ahead. Tony O`Toole (22) shot 41pts for Div 4 honours to make it three players from Ballinagar in the prizes.
The St. Patricks Day Open was won by Esker Hills visitor Damien Guinan (16) on 40pts ahead of Mickey Dunne (19) 37pts.
