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.
