Mr Jim Cantwells Presidents Prize
At the weekend and we had another Major with Jim Cantwell’s Presidents Prize. The turnout was huge and the quality was high and this reflected in the standard of scoring after 18 holes – a high-class field went out in near perfect conditions on Sunday evening in the 12 hole playoff and the cream rose to the top. In the men’s the ever-present Francis McCarthy came out on top with a combined 69pts beating Thomas Walsh into second on a countback and Jack Whyte to 3rd also on 69pts. Gross went to Emmet Leahy with 38pts and fourth was William McCarthy with 68pts. The Junior prize went to Carthach Leahy with 66pts. Bill Nash won the Seniors prize.
In the ladies section, Michelle Keating playing off 16 came first with 66 points. Noreen Hally took second on the podium with 62 points after a countback piping Julie Connolly in 3rd by a hair. The gross prize went to Caitlin Fitzgerald and 4th place was Kathleen Lonergan on 60 points again decided by a countback. Extremely close scoring. The past president’s prize went to Chris Noonan. Chris also had 60 points.
Congrats and thanks to Jim Cantwell on a great weekend, also thanks to Keith and the bar staff for excellent catering – Declan and the Green Keeping team for a great turned out course.
