O’Brien’s birdies make the difference

Darren O’Brien produced a super round, which included three birdies, to win Sunday’s 14 Hole Single Stableford competition.

On a perfect day for golf, the 13 handicapper, shot an amazing 37pts for the 14 holes and was a clear winner by two points from Shane McGuinness (19) who had to settle for second overall.

Barry Cunningham (8), Michael Hamilton (15) and George Rogers (19) took the three category prizes with Peter Rogers (1) returning the best gross score for the second successive week.

O’Brien, who had 10 strokes to play with because of the reduced number of holes, got off to a great start with a three point par at the first but handed it back when he double-bogeyed the next. However, successive three point pars at the third and fourth holes got him back in the groove and a two point par at the fifth was followed by a three point birdie at the par five sixth.

He then parred the next three holes for a further eight points to turn for home on 23pts. A two point par at the 10th and a two point bogey at the index two 11th brought him to 27 points with three holes to go and he then proceeded to burn off the field with a blistering finish.

O’Brien pared the par-five 12th for three points and then parred the par-three 13th for another three points before birdieing the par four 18th for four points and signing for a remarkable 37pts.

Sunday, February 4 – 14 Hole Singles Stableford – Overall: Darren O Brien (13) 37pts, Shane McGuinness (19) 35pts. Category 1 (0-12):Barry Cunningham (8) 34pts. Category 2 (13-18): Michael Hamilton (15) 33pts. Category 3 (19-28): George Rogers (19) 33pts. Best Gross: Peter Rogers (1) 29pts.

Blemish-free Browne a clear winner

Mark Browne was a clear winner of Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition which was played over 14 Holes with seven clubs.

The 22 handicapper shot a blemish-free round of 34pts and had two points to spare over John Farrell (22) who edged out Seamus Bailey (11) for second place on countback.

Peter Rogers (1), Pat Curran (13) and Conor Byrne (22) took the category prizes with Rogers also recording the day’s best gross score, a two under par 30pts.

Browne was steadiness personified in playing to his handicap, not dropping a shot, and taking his three point par chances when they arose.

His first par arrived on the second and he then had back to back three point pars on the fifth and sixth before two more back to back pars came on the 10th and 11th. The par three 13th yielded his sixth par of the day and all he needed on the 18th was a two point bogey five to finish two points ahead of the field.

Sunday, January 28 – 14 Holes Singles Stableford – Overall: Mark Browne (22) 34pts, John Farrell (22) 32/21pts, Seamus Bailey (11) 32pts. Category 1 (0-12): Peter Rogers (1) 31pts. Category 2 (13-16): Pat Curran (13) 29pts. Category 3 (17-28): Conor Byrne (22) 30pts. Best Gross: Peter Rogers 30pts.
