Big congrats to Ger Treacy who represented Gowran in Roscrea in the Captains Prize Winners competition last Friday. Ger qualified with a super 39 points, he wins a trip to the Algarve along with the other 3 qualifiers to compete for the overall All Ireland Captains Prize Winner.

Nine Hole

This week’s Brendan McDermott Golf Academy Golf Shop 9 hole winner is Jim Walsh. Jim now heads the league table and guaranteed himself a spot in the playoff final on October the 4th. With only 2 rounds remaining to qualify for the playoff it’s still wide open. Even if you have no points to date, two victories should see qualification. The predicted qualification mark is 20 points, depending on results it may drop to 19. Anyone above 20 points has mathematically qualified at this stage.

Birdie hole was the 5th.

Jim Walsh 23 points playing off 14

Mick Fitzpatrick 22 points playing off 12

Judy Dick 22 points playing off 12
