Maloney Maintenance Open Fourball
Sunday 27th March 2016
The Fourball competition on Easter Sunday introduced the new handicapping system, where players played off 9/10ths rather than the old ¾ handicap reduction. It also allowed pairs to sign in together on the computer, allowing results to be shown much quicker. The lesser handicap reduction had a significant effect on the scores returned, Niall Munroe (11) & Michael Mockler (16) teamed up to shoot an amazing 49pts, despite the cold, showery and blustery conditions. Well done to both lads who make the commute from Celbridge and Saggart most weekends. Another prize made its way to Bracknagh once again, as bush men Keith Bracken (14) partnered Tom Lawlor (18) produced 47pts to take the runner up spot.
The Furlong Easter Open singles was won by Mullingar based Gary O`Riordan (12) with an impressive 43pts ahead of Rhode veteran Pat Rogers (14) whose 39pts edged out Paul Cuskelly and young Henrick Cunningham on countback.
Next Weekend competition is the first Stableford GOY of the season sponsored by A&K Fashions/ Guy Clothing.
