Golf Report for Week ending 7th Feb

Last Saturday’s stableford event at Strabane Golf Club was won by Kevin Keegan who posted an impressive 38 points over 15 holes.  Jason Kelly was a couple of points adrift in second place, with Kevin Gallagher a further shot back in third place.  The gross award went to Conal Cooke with 29 points.

The Supervalu Springers league got back on track on Sunday, having suffered some disruption due to the inclement conditions.  The “Uncle Buck” quartet of Freddie Patterson, Mark McDermott, Brian Cairns and Martin Patton took full advantage of the favourable conditions to take their total to 126 points, sufficient to give them a two point lead at the head of the table. The “Under-Fifties” currently occupy second place, one point ahead of the experienced “Always late.”

The Supervalu Sweep finished thus:

1. Martin Elliott and John Hegarty – 42 points

2. Barry Reid and William Potts – 41 points

3. Liam Patton and Paul McLaughlin – 40 points

Week Two of the Thursday Club saw Jimmy Wasson just edge out Eamon Kennedy for the top spot, with both players returning 35 points. Damian McGranaghan finished third, just one point shy of the winning score.

Brian Haughey took the honours in Week Three of the series, his 32 point haul getting him home on the break of a tie from Eamon Kennedy who again finished as runner-up.  Denis Porter’s 31 points was enough to take the third prize.

There will be music in the clubhouse this Saturday evening, February 13.
