Club Notes – 3rd June 2014


Rory Doherty (16) showed a significant return to some of the form he is capable off in Saturday’s Masala & Mamma Masala sponsored stableford returning the best total of the day 41pts, this despite a nervy six, five, finish but two earlier birdies at the seventh and the tenth holes more than made up for the later mistakes, and a total of 22pts on the inward nine proved to be a strong enough finish on the day. The runner up was Colin mcCafferty(14) who has been having a fantastic golfing season in this his second year, he will however regret a very short putt missed on the final green that would have seen him take the win on break of tie. Third place went to Declan O’Hare (10) with 40pts who has also been very consistent since his return from injury. Fourth went to Andrew Connolly(12) a shot back on 39pts with Sean MacIntyre (12) fifth with a steady 39pts also. Conal Cooke (2) took the gross prize with a three over par round with the nines going to Gerry Glover (17) with 22pts for the opening nine and to Brian Cairns(16) with an eye catching 25pts for the back nine.  The senior’s prize over 60’s was won by Brian Kelly with 38pts. The presentation for this event is scheduled for Sunday 8th June at 8.00pm with the presentations for The Subway Open 22nd May, T.Oscar Rollins Open 26th May and the Northern Confectionary Open 29th May also being made, all winners are asked to be in attendance.
