Men’s 11 Hole Singles – Saturday 7th/Sunday 8th February

The frosty start to Sunday kept the course closed until 10.30 a.m.  Once play got underway a thick fog descended making scoring very tough for most. However, eagle-eyed John Moore (16) shot a great 28 points to take victory.  Afterwards John commented the fog helped block out the constant twerking of his playing partner Disco so for once could fully concentrate on his golf.  Pat Nolan (15) took 2nd place on a countback with 25 points from Patrick Hynes (18) who also scored 25 points.  Both John Colgan and Joe Byrne fell out of the top three when penalty points were applied from previous wins in the 11 hole series.

Next week is the final of the 11 hole competitions – we are back to 18 holes after the Captains Drive-in.
