CUP AND SHIELD FINALS.
The Winter League Cup and Shield Finals came to a successful finish on Sunday last with victory in the Cup going to the all Kilmallock team captained by John Joe Buckley.
John Joe had very sportingly granted a half match to Declan Mooney absent on a continental holiday. From the outset it was obvious that this game would go down to the wire, two wins for John Joe Buckley’s team came when Dave Guiney defeated Bill Hanley on the 17th and Paul Allen edged out veteran Jim Stapleton on the 18th.
Back came reliable Captains Jerry O’Connell for an easy victory on the 13th and when Joe Carroll won on the 16th the teams were tied at 2.5 matches each.
The rules of the competition stated that in the event of a tie the last pair should play 3 further holes. Quickly into his stride Joe won the 19th. Back came Kieran Donegan to win the 20th and in a welter of excitement Kieran with a bonus shot won the 21st hole to secure victory for the Kilmallock side.
The teams were John Joe Buckley, Paul Allen, Tom Allen, Dave Guiney & Kieran Donegan.
Jerry O’Connell, Jim Stapleton, Joe Carroll, Bill Hanley & Declan Mooney.
The Shield was a triumph of youth over experience as Trevor Barry’s team claimed victory by 3.5 matches to 1.5.
Once again team Captain Michael Davern displayed great sportsmanship by awarding a half match to Cathal Hawe who was unable to play because of injury and these gestures in both the Cup and Shield must surely serve as a precedent for all future matches in these competitions.
Henry Dore won a marvellous match for his team, his putter on this occasion causing no problems. The recent lesson was obviously beneficial. We congratulate all four teams on excellent golf and well done to both winners.
The teams were, Trevor Barry, Cathal Hawe, Michael Fitzgerald Jnr, Mark Cagney & Stephen Twomey.
Michael Davern, Damien Logan, Pat C. Dawson Tony Davern & Henry Dore.
42 Senior Golfers turned out on Wednesday last for their weekly game and this is the largest number playing since the commencement of the competition 4 years ago
David O’Connor and John Cotter are regularly in the winners enclosure but it was nice to see David Keating winner of many prizes down the years claiming his first ever Senior Prize.
Many of our members were tuned in on Sunday night last to “The Voice of Ireland” and were thrilled and delighted with the great performance and overall win of Keith Hanley. Congrats Keith and our very Best Wishes for further successes in the entertainment world.
