CLONMEL GOLF CLUB
Clonmel Oil Singles Stableford
A very big number of players turned out for the Clonmel Oil sponsored singles stableford competition run over Saturday and Sunday last and Ger Casey delivered the goods when he scored a very impressive 40 points off of 14 handicap and that was without a single point on the Index 1 13th. Ger had a very consistent front nine scoring impressively on nearly all holes where he had shots and he turned in just 4 over par for 21 points. He had amassed a further 6 points when he came to the Index 1 13th and here all his bad shots came on the one hole but it didn’t faze him and from here home he was again very consistent scoring very well on all the remaining 5 holes to give him an inward 19 points for his 40 total. The consistent James Geraghty - who was the runner up - was hot on Ger’s heels and only for a blunder on the short 10th - where he didn’t score - he might well have pipped or at least been equal to the winner. In third place with a very good 37 points was John O’Brien off of 5 handicap and Johnny Quinn (4) had the best gross with 32 points.
The Club is grateful to Clonmel Oil for their wonderful sponsorship and prizes.
