McKeever edges out Duffy to win

John McKeever shot an excellent round of 42pts to win Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition edging out Paddy Duffy by a single point.

The 12 handicapper was into the groove straight from the off as he parred four of the first five holes for a 14 point haul and he picked up another nine points from the next four holes as he parred his way to the turn.

A bogey at the 10th was his first one point hole but he responded well by parring four of the next five holes for another 14pt haul to move to 37pts with four holes to go.

Another one point followed at the 16th but he stayed on the rails to the finish as he parred 17 and bogeyed 18, where he had shot, for a further four points and a finishing total of 42.

That was one better than Paddy Duffy (13) who shot an excellent 41pts to finish second overall while the category prizes went to Austin Shaw (8), Seamus Bailey (12) and Eamon Hoey (18).
