Daly and McCarthy combine to win Club Fourball

High-handicappers Ciaran Daly and Bill McCarthy combined brilliantly to win today’s Men’s Club Fourball in windy conditions over the white course.

Ciaran, off 18, and Bill, off 26, produced an impressive 47pts as the slick greens caught out many pairs and it was enough to take first prize ahead of seasoned campaigners Liam Mernagh (11) and Sean Hession (10) who finshed second on countback after carding an excellent back nine of 23pts on their way to an overall total of 46pts.

Niall Connolly (16) and Peter McCaughey (17) also dovetailed well to take third spot and followed up a sizzling front nine of 24pts with a back nine of 22pts on their way to 46pts.

A feature of today’s event was the new look seventh hole which was in play for the first time in competition following the addition of a new pond wall in front of the green and a devilish pot bunker to the left of the putting surface.
