Diary Event

As Lar Mooney basked in the glory of his Captains Prize win it fell to Dr Pat MacCarthy (16) to re-establish Cork pride with a brilliantly executed win on Sunday. A difficult first hole faded into irrelevance with pars on 4, 5, 7 and 9 and an outward 19 points. In pole position at the turn the back nine was a case of "close the eyes and pull like a dog" as they say in Skibbereen!

Pars on 10 and 11 opened up a gap but difficulties on 17 almost opened the door for the field. However, a majestic drive on 18 was followed by a beautiful pitch to the centre of the green. Two putts completed the par and set the target. An excellent 36 points could not be matched and Dr Pat marked up yet another victory!

A rollercoaster round for Vincent O'Keefe (8) which included five pars and birdies on 4, 14 and 18 saw him just fall short with 34 points. A super round but the par 3 sixth proved fatal in the end.

Aiden Kilkenny (23) took third place on countback with a birdie on 14 and a par on 16 being the features of his back nine. A difficult start had left Aiden with a mountain to climb, yet but for dropped points on 17 and 18 he might have had a run at the victory.

A total of 33 entries on the day, pretty good considering the numerous Captains Day hangovers being nursed.
