With the upturn in the weather and the significant easing of the underfoot conditions,it was almost predictable that scoring would be of high quality in Saturday’s singles event at Strabane Golf Club. Hugo McCusker was the top performer on the day, his superb 39 point return giving him a one point winning margin. Albert McNally has been in outstanding form throughout the winter and yet another 38 points on Saturday gave him the runners-up spot ahead of Senan Roarty who had a similar return. Enda Kennedy, playing off a +1 handicap, posted 32 points to take the gross category award.

With Sunday’s Supervalu Springers able to proceed, it meant that there was a full weekend programme at the club, the first in several weeks. Early leaders, The Twilight Zone, strengthened their place at the head of the league by taking their total to an impressive 73.5 points. Nearest challengers, Two R&P’s, currently sit on 71 points, with Villa Four in third place on 68 points.

The Week Six winning pairing was Charlie Patton and Brian Cairns with 42 points. Eric Reid and William Potts returned 41 points to finish second with Liam McDevitt and Maurice Doherty in third place with 39 points.

Only three weeks of the league remains and these will be played out in the greensomes format with all scores to count. Tommy Forbes was the latest winner of the Thursday Club. He carded 32 points, one better than runner-up Mark Sharkey. Billy Doherty was a further couple of points back in third place.
