Heavy mid morning rain saw some players abandon their rounds long before their scheduled end but a bright afternoon saw the usual busy Sunday afternoon on the course.


Barry Murphy

Two players broke away from the field after producing their best rounds in some time and Barry Murphy took the coveted trophy with a nett 63 off 28.  He was 1 under his handicap at the turn but 2 nett eagles and 4 nett birdies on the back 9 saw him come home in 6 under handicap for a long expected victory.Brian Scullion

Brian McCabrey came second with a nett 64 off 21.  He was 3 under his handicap for each half of his journey and will be hoping this is the turning point in a summer which promised so much after a brilliant pre-season spell.

Third place went to Brian Scullion with a nett 67 off 4.  Four handicap reductions and 4 buffer zone finishes in his last 10 outings show just how consistent he is, and his birdies at 4 and 12 played their part in an almost flawless round of 71.

Two players returned nett 69s with Malachi McConville, 4, taking 4th place on the back 9.  Birdies at 6 and 12 had put him into good shape for the closing stretch and despite a double bogey at 16 he managed to hang on for the last nett prize.

Gary ClarkeHaving won the previous day, Edward Watters, 13, looked like he might make it a double weekend victory when he was 3 under his handicap after 12 holes. He then somehow managed to drop shots 7 shots over the next four holes, each shot dropping him a step down the ladder and eventually out of the prizes.

Birdies at 1, 2, 10 and 17 were balanced by four bogeys to give Gary Clarke a level par round and yet another gross prize.
