Steady McCabe captures Tempest Dish

Bernie McCabe (18) won the Ladies Tempest Dish by one point when her 38pts was enough to see off Geraldine Gallagher (42) with Marguerite Reilly (15) and Anne Doohan (23) a further point adrift.

McCabe played very steady throughout her round, scoring on all 18 holes. She shot 18pts over the front nine with three point pars at fifth and eighth balancing out one-point returns at the fourth and seventh.

Two more three point pars followed at the 11th and 13th and although a six at the 14th only yielded one point her accuracy on the par threes reaped dividends on the 17th where she recorded a birdie two for four points and one point she gained on the 18th for her six was enough to take her past Gallagher and claim victory.

Reilly, Doohan and Gallagher all claimed the category prizes while Deirdre Smith (+2) shot an excellent gross score of 37pts. Elizabeth McGuinness (19) won the Nine-Hole competition with 15pts.
