McDonnell beats Rafferty in play-off to win Dundalk Scratch Cup

Jack McDonnell (centre) receives the Dundalk Scratch Cup from Dundalk Golf Club Captain Trevor Giff and Martin McDonnell, Managing Director of One Finance.

JACK McDonnell of Forest Little defeated Dundalk’s Caolan Rafferty in a sudden-death play-off to win the One Finance sponsored Dundalk Scratch Cup for the first time.

McDonnell and Rafferty were level on seven under at the end of the 36 hole tournaments but McDonnell birdied the opening play-off, the par four first, after an excellent pitch to six feet. 

Dundalk’s Eoin Murphy and Robert Moran of The Castle finished two shots behind McDonnell and Rafferty with another Dundalk player, Aaron Grant in fifth.
