Team Deer Park in the driving seat in Winter League




With one round to go, Team Deer Park are firmly in the driving seat to qualify for the final of the Tiernan’s Centra Blackrock Winter League and have extended their lead at the top of the standings.

Their overall score of 145 was two better than second place Team Ceann Scribe and allowed them to go 26 points clear at the top of the table. With a 38 point gap between them and third placed An Seach they are now odds-on to qualify for the matchplay final between the top two sides.

The question as to who will be their opponents is still up for grabs. Twelve points separate Ceann Scribe from An Seach so there will be plenty to play for when the Winter League resumes on February 28.

This Sunday, our 2016 captains Maurice Soraghan and Jean Connolly, will have their Captain’s drive-in.

The weekend Singles Stableford competition was won by Michael Coburn (8) who edged out Austin Shaw (9) on countback after both return scored of 33pts for the 14 hole event.

Gregory McCaughey (10) also shot 33pts to take Category 1 from Kevin Barry (10) while Derek Murdock (13) took Category 2 with 32pts from Anthony O’Donoghue (15). Sean Gallagher (25) won Category 3 with 31pts from Eamon Hoey (18).
