Choose Your Partner - Week
Neither the weather or the rugby was enough to keep 23 pairs from playing the course on Saturday which was enough to complete Round 4 of the Martin Kane sponsored Choose Your Partner competition. A level par round from Paddy Ryan (10) and Michael McArdle (18) brought the pair a winning 32 points on a very tough course with Ryan in particular playing brilliant golf and McArdle was there whenever Paddy faltered which wasn’t too often. In second place with 30 points was the Captain, Tony Horne (18) - who now gets himself in among the qualifiers - playing with Michael McSweeney (13) who will also most certainly take his place on the first tee in the Final. In 3rd place was Philip Kearns (6) and Emmet Corcoran (19), both already on the leaderboard and getting onto that leaderboard for the first time was the 2017 Captain, Billy Hewitt with playing partner Garrett Condon. The 5th and 6th placed pairs of Pat O’Connor with Tom Flood and Joe O’Shea with Richard Brannigan respectively who are both on the leaderboard from previous rounds. Presently, and with three rounds of the competition still to go there are 43 players on the leaderboard and the way the points have been distributed in the first four rounds it is likely that any player with just 1 point will qualify, unless something really dramatic happens so there is still a great opportunity for others to get to the Final.
Just a note to say - and not for the first time that there are five simple scorecard rules to be followed when entering a competition, ie., name of the competition, name(s) of the competitor(s), date, handicap(s) and sign and mark the scorecard. Any of these missing from the card will lead to disqualification.
