Joe Franklin shot a super 44 pts last Tuesday to win the Open Singles. On Thursday it took 42 pts to collect a win in our Seniors Open. The winners in each division were Declan Maguire, Alex Ryan and Tom O’Dea. The Open Fourball on Saturday was won by Tim Walsh & James Ryan with 46 pts. Sunday’s Club Singles was won by Adrian Byron with a nett 63, trailing in his wake were Eddie Madden 65 and Dan McKenna 68. Best gross was Michael P Ryan 73 gross.
We had a fine turnout for our Friday Scramble/BBQ. Scoring was red hot despite the rain. Thanks to The Duffy Grill for keeping all the troops well nourished.
In our Juniors, congratulations to Niall Carew who won the Rank Cup on Monday with a great 43 pts, Niall O’Shea was just one back with 42. In the President’s Junior Prize Paddy Kennedy (Jnr) took the honours with a very impressive 35 pts.
