Diary Event

The final chapter of the Clubs matchplay season came to a conclusion on Sunday afternoon. Another afternoon of high drama as the Men's Fourball played out in the last piece of sunshine expected for the best part of a week.

The protoganists Captain Gerry Lawlor and Fergal O'Brien and Danny, sorry, Martin McGlynn and Pat Young had been honing the swings and practising the putts all week. Well, except Fergal, he was working.............and Martin he was working too..............most days!

Gerry and Fergal had a game plan, start smooth, ease into the Fergal started with a birdie! Three pars and a birdie in the first four holes saw Fergal and the Captain take a two hole lead on 4 but Martin and Pat quickly hit back on 6. The Captain took a bit of exception and holed brilliantly on 7 to restore the two hole advantage. So it was at the turn, the young pretenders leading by two!

A par on 11 for Gerry extended the lead further but Martins brilliant birdie three on 12 brought it back to a two hole game. But destiny cannot be denied and with Fergal and Gerry dovetailing brilliantly they began to apply the pressure on 13. Gerry followed a par on 13 with another on 14 to bring the match to dormie 4. Inevitably,Martin and Pat had no answer on 15 as Fergal powered his way to a comfortable par to close out the match.

Great golf from both pairs and in fairness a deserved victory in the end.

Congratulations Captain Gerry Lawlor and Fergal O'Brien, Men's Fourball Matchplay Champions 2019. Well done!

Commiserations Martin and Pat, no doubt you will give it a good run again next year!

Finally, on behalf of the members and the Committee I would like to thank the members of both the Men's and Ladies Competition teams for managing and overseeing all of the Matchplay competitions this year.
