Single Stableford Competition Round – Winter League.
Sponsored by Fitzpatricks Hyundai Garage Tullamore.
A damp and windy day greeted competitors last Sunday in Castle Barna. The elements did’nt effect Michael Dunne (19) too badly, the ever improving Geashill sharp-shooter posting 39pts to take first position on countback. Big hitting Daingean man Dan Shaughnessy (3), 37pts was enough to take the Cat 1 honours. Ollie McGlynn (13) out for the first time in quiet a while made the trip from Carbury worthwhile as he collected the Cat 2 prize with 37pts. Bracknagh golfers are faring very well over the winter and Aidan Geoghegan (19) was the latest winner from the backwoods, claiming Cat 3 with 39pts. Rhode’s Dermot Murphy (20) made an overdue return to the prizes as he collected Cat 4 with 35pts.
This was the final qualifying round for the Fitzpatricks Hyundai sponsored Winter League. The qualifiers have now been drawn into eight teams for the matchplay stage and these teams and matches can be viewed on the club noticeboard, website and facebook page. Quarter finals are listed for 14th February, don’t expect much love to be shown on the fairways.
