McDermott Comes from 9 Back To Clinch Captains Prize.
Gerry McDermott claimed his first Captain’s prize on Sunday last when he stormed through the field on the 3rd 9, shooting level par over the 3rd 9 for a total of 163.5 to win by half a shot from Alan Loftus on 164. Leading qualifiers Joe Bruen 129 & Mick Healy 129 were out together on the 3rd 9 along with David McDermott 132, with Jason Loftus & Eamonn McGirl 2 shots further back. These 5 were probably favourites for the title, but GMc’s sizzling 25.5 on 3rd 9 left the rest fighting for minor places. David McDermott won the Gross with 181 only 6 over for 45 holes, Mick Healy was 3rd on 164.5 & Jason Loftus won Cat 3 with 165.5.
