Choose Your Partner - Week 2
While the weather and the course continue to be the main topic of most conversations, Choose Your Partner, the new competition, is fast beginning to upstage the weather and course conversations especially after this second week of the competition where a very large entry for the week and weekend saw exceptional scoring by a number of partnerships with at least three such partnerships being under par for the 12 holes. At 2 under par and with a winning score of 34 pts was the partnership of Paul McGee and Paul Kelleher who are quickly becoming ‘the pair to beat’ in 4ball competition. In the conditions that prevailed on Sunday, a good strong breeze, occasional rain and absolutely no run on the ball this was a fantastic score. Their score however was bettered but unfortunately the pair involved in the better score did not comply with all of the competition rules and hopefully they’ll return to shoot a good score next week.
The competition as set up is played in 4ball format but it is a singles competition with the leading 40 players, plus equals, to qualify for the Final, and there are already signs of who will be up there at the conclusion of the weekly 4balls, i.e., both Conal Murphy and Denis Buckley sit proudly on top of the leader board having scored in both competitions thus far...... but there’s a long way to go!

Starting on Monday 29th January and continuing up to Sunday 4th February is Round three which is a Scotch 4-Somes competition. The Handicap allowance is 1/3 of the combined handicaps and after the calculation of the 1/3 the result should be rounded upwards or downwards as in e.g., 6 & 2/3 = 7 shots or 9 & 1/3 = 9 shots
Note: All competitors are again reminded that the scorecard must contain the name of the competition, the date, the handicap(s) and make sure that the card is signed and marked.
