Friday Open Stableford

This week’s Friday Open Stableford was played in blustery conditions and this was reflected in the scores returned with the lower handicap players coming out on top. The top four places on the day were only seperated by two points with first and second places having to go to the back nine to decide a winner. Eamonn Byrne from Swinford Golf Club took first place with a score of 35 points with a round that saw him 10 pars, health three on the fornt nine and seven on the back nine, including six-in-a-row from the ninth to the fourteenth holes. Eamonn also sank a birdie putt on the par four eighth hole to ensure he signed for his winning score of 35 points.

Second place was taken by Ciaran Henry, also with a score of 35 points. Ciaran was the epitome of consistency as he managed a total of twelve pars, spread equally between the front and back nines with six on each including six-in-a-row from the seventh to the twelfth holes. He also closed out his round with a par on the difficult 18th hole to ensure he did enough to secure second place with his score of 35 points.

Third place was taken by Gerard Henry from Tubbercurry Golf Club one point behind the leaders with a score of 34 points. Gerard scored a total of eight pars, four on the front nine and four on the back nine as well as adding birdies on the par four fourth and par four thirteenth holes to sign for his score of 34 points.
