Results:
Open Singles, Thursday 27th May 2010
1st Michael O’Sullivan, Gowran Park (5) – 39 pts
2nd Andrew Farrell, Wexford (5) – 38 pts

Fixtures:
The Open Singles continues on Thursdays. Visitors: €20 per person. Members: €5 per person.
Gowran Park will be a host venue for The Jimmy Bruen Shield (qualifier) on Sunday 6th June and not the Monday as appears in the diary.
The Charity Fundraiser will be held on the holiday Monday 7th and not on the Sunday as appears in the diary.
So basically both events are swapping around.
The Jimmy Bruen will see 17 clubs from all over the south-east come to Gowran Park where only 1 club will advance to the Leinster Play-off stages (last 8).
The Charity Fundraiser is in support of 3 very fine charities – Home Care, 3T’s & Rumble for Crumlin. The format on the day will be a 3-person rumble (3 people playing together as a team, 1 score counts on the first 6 holes, 2 scores to count on holes 7-12 and all 3 scores count on holes 13-18). Please try to support.
