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, 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.

Return to the Fairways

For those of you who thought they were seeing an apparition on the golf course this morning, your eyes were not deceiving you. It was in fact Jimmy Kiernan, making a welcome return. Jimmy hasn’t played since the Winter League due to work commitments and it was like playing golf with one of the royal family this morning with all the waving that was done during the round. Good to see you back Jimmy.

Jimmy Bruen 2015

Commiserations to the Pierce Purcell team who lost narrowly to Ballymote in the match on Saturday. Conditions were difficult at both locations as the rain was persistent throughout. Strandhill were the away team for this round with two matches played at Strandhill and the remaining three played in Ballymote. Both matches finished at the twelfth hole in Strandhill with the Strandhill pairings coming out on top and facing an agonizing wait as all three matches in Ballymote headed for the 18th hole. It was a closely fought match but Ballymote did enough to secure victory by winning all three home matches.  We would like to wish Ballymote the best of luck in the rest of the competition.

Well done to all involved for their hard work in preparation for their respective matches. The team and club would like to thank David Lindsay and Robbie Henneberry for their excellent work in preparing and choosing the team this year.

Val Harte Cup Qualifying Strokeplay Competition

Saturday’s Val Harte Cup Qualifying Strokeplay Competition was played in similar conditions to Friday’s competition but with little or no wind to contend with. The standard of golf played on the day was very high with the top three players only separated by three strokes. Joe Tuffy took first place with an impressive round of golf that saw him return a score of 65 strokes. Joe recorded a total of seven pars over his 18 holes with four coming on the front nine and the remaining three coming on the back nine with a birdie on the par three ninth hole added for good measure. He could have actually finished two strokes better had it not been for an unfortunate out of bounds second shot on the final hole but 65 was good enough to secure victory.

Second place was taken by Fintan Monaghan, one stroke back with a score of 66 strokes. Fintan scored five pars over the course of his eighteen holes with four of them coming on the front nine including three-in-a-row from the second to the fourth hole inclusive and the remaining par coming on the back nine to complete a round of 66.

Third place was taken by Robert Kelly with a score of 68 strokes. Robert scored an impressive twelve pars over his round with five coming on the front nine and the remaining seven coming on the back nine. He also added two birdies, one on the par five fist hole and the second on the par four eighth hole to complete his score of 68.

1st Joe Tuffy 82 – 17 = 65
2nd Fintan Monaghan 90 – 24 = 66
3rd Robert Kelly 73 – 05 = 68
