Men’s Club – Sunday 9 July 2017

The good weather produced some very good scoring in last weekends Stableford GOY competition. Gerard Kenny (16) made his weekly journey from Dublin very worthwhile on Sunday. Gerard, helped by two birdies on 10 & 12, shot 42 Pts to take first place. Second place went to early riser Eammon Gorman (25) losing out on the top spot by virtue of a countback. A countback was also needed to decide Division 1, David O`Connell (8) 39 Pts edging out David Brazil. Rhode`s Vincent Murphy (14) collected his second Division 2 prize in three weeks after shooting 40 Pts. After winning the Minor Cup last week and getting a two shot cut, Francis Reilly (18) continued his great form to claim Division 3 with 41 Pts. The Division 4 honours went to Tom Dunne (20) on 40 Pts. Pat Rogers had a terrific day last Thursday when he shot 43 Pts to win the Open competition. Not content with that he went out again in the evening 9 hole and shot 23 Pts, which would have won the competition but for the cut incurred on his earlier effort. Still 66 points in 27 holes was some going, Pat reckons he should have retired years ago.
