Competition Results 2017
Youth and Experience both had their days over the weekend in Greencastle Golf Club’s Christmas Hampers. Hubert Cavanagh only had one point on the last hole, but that one point gave him a break of tie victory over Brian Barr and Adrian Torrens who also had 34 points but only 17 points on the inward holes compared to Hubert’s 18. Full results were:
Saturday 18th November – Gents Christmas Hamper Day One
1st Hubert Cavanagh (17) 34;
2nd Brian Barr (12) 34;
3rd Adrian Torrens (14) 34;
4th Kevin Thompson (10) 33;
5th Brendan McCloskey (13) 33.
Young Eamon Kelly spread-eagled the field on Sunday to shoot 39 points over the 15-hole layout and take home the second day’s Hamper. A timely birdie 2 at Bovairds came in the middle of three double bogies and gave Eamon 2 points to spare over the field. Paddy McGilloway birdied four holes on the outward half to take the runner-up spot. Full results were as follows:
Sunday 19th November – Gents Christmas Hamper Day Two
1st Eamon Kelly (21) 39;
2nd Paddy McGilloway (11) 37;
3rd Neil Guckian (8) 35;
4th Declan McBay (14) 35;
5th Karol Lynch (19) 35.
