Open Fourball – Sunday 10th November


Our final Open Fourball of the year took place on Sunday last after a short delay due to frost.  Blessington Lake members Gavin Morris (18) and Michael Anglim (14) too first spot on the day with 47 points.  Serious scrutiny took place to define 2nd and 3rd place between Gowran Park pairings James Comerford and Larry Cleere and Paddy McGuinness and Mick Dillon after being level on the back 9, 6 , 3 and back 1.  They were eventually divided by a countback on the last 6 holes of the front 9 with James Comerford’s eagle on the 8th hole being the determining factor – well done James and Larry.


Autumn Qualifier – 7th/8th November 2013


Competition was strong in last weeks’ Autumn Qualifying series.   Thomastown native John Skehan (18) took the leading qualifying spot on a countback from Michael Fitzpatrick (13) – both players scored 37 points with Gerry Minogue (15) taking the remaining qualifying spot 2 points further back. The series continues this Thursday and Friday with a timesheet in place with the final to take place on 13th December.
