MEN'S NOTES

Captain Fantastic
“The Morris Oil Summer Medal” was won on Sunday last  by this year’s captain Billy Greene with 70 nett. It was a fantastic result also for Michael Healy who was first on the day with a 69 nett and as category winner he will go forward to represent the club in the next round of All-Ireland Medal of which the grand final will be hosted by Clonmel Golf Club in August. Michael joined nearly three years ago on the "get into golf program" in Andrew Gartlan’s year as Captain. Kian O’Reilly came third with a 70 nett score, pushing Ciaran Kenrick into fourth place with a 71 nett also. Jack Alton was Top Dog on the day shooting a 75 gross.

Pierce Purcell Trials
Some housekeeping now...! If I don't put up this "Purcell" message for Noel O'Brien there could be an hour-long phone call to follow. So here goes! If you have a pulse and a few pounds and a handicap index of 10.5 or more at the start of this year put your name on the "Purcell Trials Sheet" in the lower hall or call Noel yourself on 087 2223253 or just come along Wednesday next at 6.15 pm.
After last week’s emphatic win in the "John Dwyer Fourball" Sean Callaghan and Billy Acheson, once again pulled away from the field to win by three clear shots from Young Sean Hawkins and Pat Quinlan who themselves had a a fine score of 46 pts to push Kevin O'Donnell and Mikey Power into third on a count back. Supreme scoring by all, but the 49 points by the "young bucks" was somewhat exceptional! This week’s winners of the "Morris Oil fourball the aforementioned Noel O’Brien & Donal Foley narrowly pipped the experienced Davy Hallinan and the new lad Ronnie Fitzgerald on a last 6 count back; in third were Brian Prendergast and Shane Fagan with a respectable 44 pts. Well done all!
