Just one event was played during the week, the regular Wednesday Open. Sean Connaughton was fired with enthusiasm prior to teeing off and by round’s end, he had a narrow margin of victory over his nearest rivals. Eighteen points out signalled a promising round to come and he returned in two under par nett for 34 points altogether.
Last week’s notes were littered with inaccuracies and I really must apologise for the drop in the already dodgy standard of reportage. Pat Reidy, and not Alan Kerrigan, brought Sam Maguire from Kerry, the proceeds of the Alzheimer’s Fundraiser far exceeded the two thousand mentioned and the times given for the two societies last Saturday were switched. I guess this is what happens when middle age strikes!
The club wishes all its members and friends a happy Christmas and joyous New Year.
