So now we know! While everyone was straining every sinew on the course over the weekend President Alice (28) wasn't bothered! No, she was on the putting green getting in some sly practice.

Well it all paid off on Tuesday as she romped home to victory in the Ladies 18 hole stableford qualifier. I don't know what the First Gentleman said to her as she left the house but it was explosive. A birdie on the first with a nine iron from the tee and a brilliant par 5 on the second saw her take the competition by the scruff of the neck from the outset. She eased off a bit on the way out for 17 points but re-established her dominace on the way back with three pointers on 11, 14 and 16 while topping it all off with a superb par on 18 for an inward nine of 18 points. Well done Alice, absolutely deserved after your equisite hosting of the Presidents Prizes over the weekend.

And what of Breda Boyle.............second on Sunday, second on Monday and on Tuesday.........................second! Would someone please tell Breda the prize for first place is usually better! Just 13 points out as she worked her previous two rounds out of her system before a blistering inward nine of 21 points with three pointers on 12, 14, 17 and 18 for a total of 34 points. That was enough for yet another runners up spot on countback from Hilary Coffey (26). Great run of form Breda, I am working on an appropriate tag, watch this space!

But for the last two holes (I know that feeling!) Hilary may well have been in pole position at the end of the day. Out in 15 points Hilary went into overdrive. A brilliant par 5 on 11 and a sweet lob wedge birdie on 15 put her out in front and looking good. However, 17 can be a cruel hole and the win just drifted away.

Congratulations to all involved and well done to a fitting winner!
