Dundalk aim for Newsam Cup success

Dundalk Golf Club will hope to end the inter-club season on a winning note this Saturday when they meet Knightsbrook in the final of the 2016 Newsam Cup at Royal Tara Golf Club.

Several years of hard work by team managers Edmund Sheridan and Peter McCaughey have paid off this year with a series of brilliant performances helping Dundalk to reach the final for the first time in years.

The competition is for golfers with a handicap of 17 or more and who are over 30 years old on January 1. The format foursomes, which is a two player team playing alternate shots, and there are five individual matches played over 18 holes and the first club to win three matches winning the tie.

All the rounds up to the final have been played on a home and away basis and Dundalk began their campaign with a major scalp when they knocked out the 2015 winners Headfort from Kells. This was followed by a very close match against neighbours Greenore before they comfortably saw off the challenge of Townley Hall in the semi final.

While only 10 players will be playing in the final the panel of players representing Dundalk is made of 15 members and all contributed to the club reaching the final leaving managers Sheridan and McCaughey with a few tough decisions to make on Saturday when they name their five pairings.

The Dundalk panel is: Nigel Giff, Eamonn McEneaney, Adrian Kenny, Kevin Carthy, Sean Quigley, Brian Crombie, Bobby McCarthy, Hugh Reilly, Jim Gollogley, Sean O’Sullivan, David Cairns, Kenneth Cairns, Martin Cairns, Benny O’Shaughnessy and Caoimhin O’Callaghan.

Saturday’s final will tee off at 2.30pm and is being held at Royal Tara as they are responsible for the running of this annual tournament which is played amongst the clubs in the North East.

Dundalk Golf Club won the Leinster Junior Cup for the first time in 21 years on Sunday after a dramatic weekend of action at Portarlington Golf Club.

After two days ofd action and three matches, everything came down to the final match on the course where Richard Newell won on the 19th hole to give Dundalk a 3-2 victory over Clontarf and the Leinster title.

The team, which was managed by Terry Conlon and Clem Walsh, arrived at the Co Laois venue as one of eight teams vying for the coveted Leinster pennant,

They faced Hermitage on Saturday morning in the quarter-finals and won by 3.5 to 1.5 with Ciaran Sheridan winning his match 3&2, Richard Newell taking his 4&2 and Josh Mackin edging his by one hole.

That earned the team a semi-final joust with Woodbrook and after Eoin Murphy had won 3&2 and Richard Newell had won 4&2 the pressure was on anchor man Aaron King with the match tied at 2-2. King held a one hole lead standing on the 18th tee and he kept his nerve to win the final hole for a two up victory and earn Dundalk a 3-2 win and a place in the final.

A 3&1 win for Ciaran Sheridan and 4&3 victory for Eoin Murphy was balanced by defeats for Josh Macken, who lost 3&2, and Aaron King, who was beaten 7&6.

That left the sides level at 2-2 and meant the destination of the title came down to the final match out of the course where Richard Newell was looking for his third win of the weekend,

All square after 18, Newell and his Dublin opponent headed down the 19th with the Clontarf player in the centre of the fairway after his drive while Newell was further on but in the first cut of rough on the left.

The Clontarf player put his approach shot over the back of the green while Newell hit a superb shot to within six feet. When his opponent sent his difficult downhill chip off the green and then failed to hole his return shot, Newell was left with two putts for victory and he duly obliged to send the large Dundalk following home happy.

Great display by Rafferty in North of Ireland

Caolan RaffertyCaolan Rafferty produced a superb performance at the North of Ireland Championship in Portrush last week when he reached the semi-final.

The plus-three handicapper was fourth in qualifying over the Dunluce and Valley courses after shooting rounds of 67 and 70 and easily made the 64 player matchplay stages.

In the first round he beat Irish international Conor Doran (Banbridge) on the 19th and then had a one hole victory over Carton House’s Keith Egan in the second round.

A 5 & 3 victory over Finaly Mason (Moor Hall) earned Rafferty a quarter-final tie with Dermot McElroy, an Irish international, a Walker Cup squad member and the current West of Ireland champion. But the Dundalk player prevailed over the Ballymena man in a tight contest as he came from two down after nine to eventually win by one hole for one of the biggest wins of his career.

That left him in the semi-finals and involved on the last day and in another close contest with Rosslare’s Gary Collins. The Wexford player eventually prevailed on the 20th hole but lost the final to John Ross Galbraith (Whitehead).
