Murray puts on star performance


Colin’s Bar Golf Society

Sunday, June 4, Silky Oak – Stableford

1st Aidan Murray (24) 42pts

2nd John Dearden (25) 41pts

Just 6 players today for Silky Oak and overnight rain had left the course soft but playable, with carts allowed on the fairways subject to the 90 degree rule.

Aidan Murray, who has had problems with his short game, blobbed the hole but went on an inspired run and had 24 points by the turn.  He slowed down a little on the inward half but still posted 42 points overall to take the win.  John Dearden had a quite front nine with just 16 points but finished strongly to take second just one point behind Aidan.

The Donkey had two ‘2’s but left carrotless.

Friday, June 9, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

1st Colin Davis (20) 32pts

2nd Colm O’Donavan (20) 30pts

3rd Bob Stokes (16) 29pts

Near Pins: Bob Stokes.

A reasonable group of 11 players today and the weather was fine and a little windy.  The course was looking good and all the fairways had been mown, but the rough was very rough.

With no one in front of us it was a quick round and we were back in the clubhouse in just on three and a half hours.  When the cards were returned the results were surprising to say the least, but the course was definitely the winner.
