Shaw crowned winner of Locavore Autumn Series

Austin Shaw (8) has been crowned winner of the inaugural Locavore Autumn Series after finishing one point clear of the field following the four round competition.

Playing out of Category One, which was for players off a handicap of less than 13, Shaw showed tremendous consistency with four consecutive top ten finishes to amass his total of 28pts.

Ciaran Sheridan (5), who won Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition, took the Category 1 prize on 23pts with Frank Byrne (9) and Liam Mernagh (12) trailing behind him.

Michael Hamilton (21) was the winner in Category 2 while George Rogers took the Category 3 prize after almost catching Shaw for the overall prize following a great final round performance.

The presentation of prizes to all the winners in the Locavore Autumn Series will take place this Sunday, December 18, in the Clubhouse.

Having shot 31pts the previous Sunday and come up short, Ciaran Sheridan, produced a similar score last Sunday and found it was enough to take the overall prize in Sunday’s 13 hole Single Stableford competition.

The five handicapper was steady throughout his round, picking up three points at the third, sixth and eight thanks to birdies and also scoring a three point par at the par-five seventh. His only blemish was a one point return from the tricky par four eight.

However, it was birdie three on the difficult par four 16th that proved the difference, as the four points he gained there enabled him to pip David Lynch (11) and Barry Grennan (10) by one point for the overall prize

Frank Byrne (9) took the Category 1 prize with Michael Hamilton taking Category 2 and Peter O’Brien (17) winning Category 3.

The winner of Week Four of the Nine Hole Repeater was Ken Lynch (11) who had 23pts and one to spare over Seamus Bailey (12) with Ray Pepper (20) a shot further back.
