Farrell takes Singles on countback

The Singles Stableford competition over the Halloween weekend was disrupted by the weather which caused the course to be closed on the Sunday so only the Saturday scores counted.

That was good news for Eoin Farrell who posted 39pts in good conditions and managed to hold off Brian Og Renaghan on countback to claim the overall win.

Playing off 20 he went out in 20pts which included four three-point pars at the second, seventh, eighth and ninth. He collected three points for pars at the 12th, 13th and 14th on the way home.

Renaghan, who was off five on the day, also went out in 20pts thanks to three-point birdies at the sixth and ninth and a three-point par at the third.

He got his back nine off to a great start with a three-point birdie at the 10th and a four-point birdie at the 11th where he had a shot and he also picked up a three-point par at the 16th as he too came home in 19pts.

Countback was unable to divide them on the back nine but Farrell had the better back six edging out Renaghan by one point.

Pat Donaghy (14) won the Delux Bathrooms Open Singles on Wednesday with a super score of 41pts which included birdies at the sixth and eighth and pars at the first, second, fifth, tenth, 14th and 17th.
