Thursday, 27th August
The competition on Thursday, 27th August was held over the old nine as there had been some heavy rainfall over the previous few days and the new nine was not fully playable. The weather conditions on the day were quite good and the scoring was of the highest order. Johnny Martin had a great day as he won the competition with a fantastic score of 44 points and he also disposed of our Captain, Albert Hogg in the matchplay. Johnny will now meet Robbie Donaldson in the semi-final with the Barber, Michael Masterson already through to the final. The Barber says that he fears neither of them. The category winners on Thursday were:- Cat. 1 – PJ Sharkey (43 points); Cat. 2 – Seamus Sweeney (40); Cat. 3 – Seamus Mulherne (40). Reggie Carroll took the First Nine with 24 points and Tommie Kenoy took the Second Nine with 20 points. Congratulations also to Francie Foley on a fine birdie 2 at the fifth which gained him five stableford points.
