Euan Woodside was the star of the show during the latest junior competition at Narin and Portnoo following his hole-in-one at the tricky third hole. The ten-year-old faded a nice ball in to the pin with his trusty seven iron and stared in amazement as the ball nestled into the cup! Euan is the nephew of Packie and Susie Gildea of Stranaglough, Glenties and is currently on holiday. The young novice golfer also won the five hole competition played on the day.
Kieran Cunnea won the Wednesday Open last week with an excellent score of 40 points. The 17 handicapper raced through the front nine in 22 points, helped in part by a birdie on the 7th. The return was a solid affair and the margin of victory was three points in the end.
