Mulligan wins Scratch Cup

image

Thomas Mulligan from Co Louth won the 2015 Dundalk Senior Scratch Cup, sponsored by Jeffers Sportsturf, after shooting a six under par score of 137 in the 36-hole tournament which attracted a quality field.

 The 16-year-old Irish international laid the foundations for his victory in the first round with a fantastic seven-under-par 65 that left him five clear of the field with 18 holes to go.

He came into the tournament as one of the favourites and it imagedidn’t take him long to show why as he chipped in at the par four first for a birdie three. Further birdies at the par-five seventh and par three ninth saw him turn in 33.

 He moved quickly to seven under courtesy of eagle threes at 10th and 12th and although he dropped his only shot of the round at the 15th he got it back on the 18th when, after a drive in excess of 300 yards, he left his chip stone dead for a tap-in birdie.

 His 65 left him five shots clear of Athlone’s Thomas O’Connor and Dundalimagek’s Caolan Rafferty who both shot two-under par 70s. O’Connor’s round featured birdies on each of the par fives while Rafferty produced a bogey free round with birdies at the 10th and 17th.

 It proved to be a big enough cushion for the youngster from Bettystown who shot a one-over par 73 in the second round to finish on six-under. He bogeyed the fourth and fifth on the front nine during his second round but birdies at three, six and nine moved him to eight-under for the tournament at the turn. However, bogeys at 10 and 11 brought him back to six under and finished on that number after a birdie at 12 was cancelled by a bogey on 16.

 It gave the chasing field a glimmer of hope but O’Connor shot a three-over 75 in his second round while Rafferty couldn’t find the birdies he needed to close the gap and eventually carded a 71 for a two round total of 141, three under par, and three shots adrift of Mulligan.

 Rafferty was actually pipped for second place by Mulligan’s clubmate Gerard Dunne who followed a disappointing 74 with a super bogey-free second round of 67 that featured birdies on three, six, seven, 12 and 15.

1st Thomas Mulligan (+1) (Co Louth) 138 (65/73)

Irwin Lockington Salver

Twelve handicapper Derek Murdock took the Irwin Lockington Salver on Easter Sunday with a six under par 66 to win by one shot from Peter McCaughey.

Murdock took full advantage of a fast start. He had shots on the opening four hole stretch and parred the tricky quartet for four nett birdies to go four under. He went to five under when he parred the index three par five seventh but gave it back at the part three ninth where he didn’t have a shot.

But a birdie three at the index two 11th was the equivalent of a nett eagle two and sent Murdock to six under with seven holes to go. He went through the next five holes without a blemish but a four at the par three 17th, where he didn’t have a shot, dropped him back to five-under.

However, he had a shot at the last and showed great character up the challenging 18th to get a four, and a nett three, to finish on 66 and pip McCaughey by a single shot.

McCaughey, who played off 16, took second overall on countback thanks to a nett 33 over the back nine.

Nine-handicapper Ultan Gaughran edged out Clem Walsh on countback for the Category 1 prize after both had shot 67 while a 67 was good enough for Ciaran Dunne to take the Category 2 prize. Oliver McGinnity, with a 70, edged out Martin McCaughey in Category 3.

In-form Ward takes Knights of Malta Cup

Brian Ward’s impressive start to the 2015 season continued on Sunday when he destroyed the field to win the Knights of Malta Cup by an impressive three shot margin.

Ward, who was second last week and won the previous Sunday, shot an eight under par 64, off 16, in the first major Strokeplay event of the season to win comfortably from a group of players on 67.

Best of these was 12-handicapper Ollie English, who took second place on countback thanks to a five under par 31 over the back nine.

Brian Reneghan who has also had a good start to the season won Category 1 ahead off teenager Josh Mackin who shot 68 to follow up his score of 41pts for third place on St Patrick’s Day.

David Brennan edged out Pat Donaghy on countback for the Category 2 prize while Tom Clarke was a comfortable winner of the Category 3 prize after shooting 67 off 18.
