Uzell pips Crosbie to take victory

A super back nine was enough to allow Alan Uzell, playing off 20, pip Martin Crosbie (10) on countback in last Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition.

Uzell shot 24pts on the home nine having turned with 17pts on his card. Although he picked up three points by parring the first and fifth he handed them back with one pointers at the third, seventh and eighth.

However, down the back nine, it was a much more impressive as Uzell took full advantage of the pleasant day.

Three points at the par five 10th got him back to level par for the day and he took command of the competition when he took 13pts from the 12th to the 15th with a scoring blitz that included a birdie two at the par three 13th.

That left him on 35pts standing on the 16th tee and he delivered handicap pars all the way in to finish on 41pts and take the overall honours.

Crosbie, who was the only other player to break 40pts, had to settle for the Category 1 prize while David Brennan (14) and Jim Deary (21) were the other category winners.

Carins powers his way to victory

Eighteen handicapper Martin Cairns produced a round that included one birdie and eight pars on his way to posting a score of 43pts in Sunday’s Single Stableford competition.

He could even afford not to score at the par five seventh, where he shot a triple bogey eight, and still have three points to spare over second placed Cathal Muckian (12).

Cairns amassed 15 points from the opening six holes before his stumble on the seventh but five points from the next two holes saw him turn for home on 20pts. He kept the scoring going as he headed down the back nine with pars at the 10th and 11th and a birdie at the 12th to move to 30pts with six holes to go. More pars followed at 14th and 17th while his only dropped shot on the back nine was at the 15th as she shot 23pts for the back nine and an overall score of 43ptd.

Kieran Arthurs (12), Paul Reilly (17) and Colm O’Hanrahan (25) were the category winners with Reilly also managing to include a hole in one at the par three 17th in his round.

Impressive win for Hession

Seven handicapper Sean Hession was an impressive winner of Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition when he shot 42pts to win by two points from teenager Cian Lynch McCrave and Darren O’Brien.

Hession, who is the latest member of the Tournament Committee, to win a Sunday competition, got off to a flying start as birdies at the first and third gave him ten points for the first three holes and although he dropped shots at the eight and ninth he still managed to turn with 20pts.

He took eight points from the first three holes on the back nine thanks to a pars at the 10th and 11th and a birdie at the par five 12th. He dropped a shot at the 13th but made amends with another explosive three hole burst from the 15th which yielded another 10pts thanks to birdies at 15 and 17 and a par at 16.

He covered the back nine in 22pts for an overall total of 42pts and that was enough to take the overall prize from Juvenile Captain Lynch McCrave and O’Brien. Lynch McCrave had the consolation of taking the Category One prize while O’Brien captured Category Three with Aidan Gaughran (13) winning Category Two. .
