Front nine lays the foundation for impressive win by Curtin

The Wednesday Open sponsored by Deluxe Bathrooms is part and parcel of the golfing season and last week’s competition which was won by Larry Curtin was a high scoring affair.

Playing off 22, Curtin shot 42pts to finished ahead of three players who were tied on 41pts.

The foundation for his score was laid on the front nine which yielded five pars at the first, second, third, fifth and seventh as Curtin racked up 23pts going out. He came home in 19th with two more pars at the 14th and 17th and could even afford a blank at the 12th as he took the overall prize.

John Clarke (12) with 41pts took second place on countback with Paul O’Hare (29) third. Frank Byrne (11) the third player on 41pts had to settled for taking the Division 2 honours. Eddie Rogers (4) won Division 1 and Michael Keating (21) took Division 3 with Garrett Duffy’s 34pts being the best gross score.
