Club Notes – 4th November 2014

 CHANGES IN WINTER CUP STANDINGS

With only one of the four section leaders managing a win in their ties last Sunday the top of the various tables show much change.               
In Section (A) leaders Mickey Kelly and Sean MacIntyre tasted defeat for the first time just managing a half point in their tie with Kevin Neeson and Eddie Patton but still hold the narrowest of advantages on 12 pts over Conal Cooke and Donal Cairns who defeated Freddie Patterson and Michael Baldrick by three points to one.
In Section (B) David Friel and George McCay are the new leaders after their close win over Nicky Wolfe and Mark Gillespie, this section is also very close with the new leaders just in front on 11.5 pts.
Section(c) probably saw the biggest shock of the day when John Brolly and Niall Coulter surprisingly defeated the unbeaten leaders Michael Neeson and Brian Kelly taking all four points, as a result they have been replaced at the summit by Oliver Creswell and Joe Kennedy who defeated Jim Harley and Noel McCrory to move on to 13 pts.
In Section (D) the leaders Chris Timoney and Neil Alcock managed a half match against Ed Patton and Angelo McGranaghan and hold a slender lead on 13 pts to date. There are still three weeks left in the sections weather permitting before the semi-finalists can all be identified but the general consensus from participants is that the new system is working very well.

Saturday Sweep
Seventy five cards were taken out for Saturday’s sweep competition played over 15 holes, the winner in pretty tough conditions was Aidan Coyle (14) with a solid 34pts which was good enough by one from the runner up Stewart McFeeters (16) and third placed Fred McGavigan(5) both on 33 pts, the gross went to Peter Doherty (5) with 28 gross pts.

Thursday Club week 9
The second half of the first phase of the Thursday club was played last Thursday over 15 holes, Oliver McNally (17) turned the clock back with some sparkling golf to registrar an impressive 40pts and even after his deduction of 1.5 was implemented he still had a winning 38.5pts from his brother Foncie McNally (13) who returned 37pts, third went to Frank McKay (24) with a very good total of 35 pts. This week’s play weather permitting will again be over the same 15 holes with the “Loop” left out.
