In-form Ward takes Knights of Malta Cup

Brian Ward’s impressive start to the 2015 season continued on Sunday when he destroyed the field to win the Knights of Malta Cup by an impressive three shot margin.

Ward, who was second last week and won the previous Sunday, shot an eight under par 64, off 16, in the first major Strokeplay event of the season to win comfortably from a group of players on 67.

Best of these was 12-handicapper Ollie English, who took second place on countback thanks to a five under par 31 over the back nine.

Brian Reneghan who has also had a good start to the season won Category 1 ahead off teenager Josh Mackin who shot 68 to follow up his score of 41pts for third place on St Patrick’s Day.

David Brennan edged out Pat Donaghy on countback for the Category 2 prize while Tom Clarke was a comfortable winner of the Category 3 prize after shooting 67 off 18.

Ward denied by Richie finish

A superb back nine delivered an impressive victory for 24-handicapper Peter Richie in Sunday’s Singles Stableford Competition and denied last week’s winner Brian Ward from claiming back to back victories.

Tied on 39pts, Richie took the overall victory on countback after shooting 23pts to Ward’s 20pts over the back nine. He shot six three-pointers on the homeward trip having managed just two on the front nine where he turned with just 16pts compared to Ward’s 19pts.

Just like last week Ward finished with three point pars on 17 and 18 for an impressive back nine of 20pts but this time he came up short after Ritchie’s even more impressive finish.

Gerry O’Keefe and Michael Hamilton also shot 39pts and took the top two prizes on Category 2 while Noel McGuinness took Category 3 with the same score. Brendan Duffy won Category 1 with 37opts on countback from Gerry Murray.

Ward’s good start continues

Sixteen handicapper Brian Ward continued his good start to the new season by winning the Singles Stableford Competition on Sunday with a score of 39pts.

That was enough to pip Brian Mernagh, playing off 13, on countback with the scores over the final six holes being used to determine the winner after both shot 20 points on the home stretch.

Ward did well to bounce back from a no score at the par three fifth and a one pointer at the par-five seventh to take four points from the eighth with a birdie three and three points from the ninths and tenth courtesy of pars. Two more three pointers at the 17th and 18th made for an impressive finish and one that ultimately got him over the line.
