Close finish to Four Man Scramble

Sunday’s competition was a Four Man Scramble with 24 teams taking part following a shotgun start.

A good balance of handicaps proved to be crucial for the winners as low men Colin Roche (5) and Eddie Rogers (3) linked up with Brendan Cleary (24) and Sean Gallagher (21) to take first prize with a final nett score of 42.7 after shooting a gross score of seven under par. This included a 0.3 deduction for a previous Winter success by one of their team.

The strong Northerly wind that swept the course made for a challenging contest but scores were good and the runners-up finished 0.2 of a shot behind the winners with Michael Coburn (9), Bill McCarthy (29), Jimmy O’Connor (19) and Gerry Campbell (24) finishing with 42.9.

That allowed them to edge out the team of Aaron Grant,   Aaron Waite, Conor Murphy and Ciaran Johnston who went through the 14 holes in an amazing 10 under par gross.
