Choose Your Partner - Week
Not every player likes Foursomes but the new competition is capturing the imagination of a lot of players and over 50 pairs played in the Scotch Foursomes last week which was Week 3 of the Choose Your Partner competition. The weather was good and the scoring was also good and Liam Flynn and Ollie Fitzpatrick indicated their intention to make it into the top 40 for the Final when they scored a very creditable 31 for the 12 holes and of the 44 players who have scored points after three rounds, Liam Flynn is the only player thus far to have scored in all three rounds and in accordance with the name of the competition - Choose Your Partner - Liam has played and scored with different partners so I can imagine his phone will be buzzing in the remaining weeks. In second place was Emmet Corcoran with Anthony O’Dwyer with a score of 30, both of whom both receive 7 points and Emmet is another player who has scored points with different partners. Third on 29 was Kevin Corry with Billy Bergin receiving 5 points. Fourth, also on 29 was Alan Shiels with Thomas Crotty and fifth with a score of 28 was Richard Brannigan with Michael McArdle who receive 2 points each. There were nine pairs with a score of 27 and each player receives one point.
