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.
