The final Men's Medal at the weekend also brought the Men's Golfer of the Year competition to a conclusion.................and what a conclusion!

Sean de Gleeson's late run up the rails in recent weeks had thrown the outcome wide open, but he needed a third consecutive win to steal the title from frontrunners, Lar Mooney, Roy Fetherston and Tom Ainsworth. A good finish would have put each of the other three in a strong position.

True to form Sean produced yet another spectacular round with a gross 71, equalling his latest course record! A nett 66 almost took the medal, but time traveller Gerry Lawlor had other ideas as his Route 66 got him home on countback. So 19 order of merit points for Sean put him up to 77 leaving the others with some work to do.

Pre weekend frontrunner Lar was pushing hard through the front nine on Sunday but a difficult homeward run cost him the eight merit points that he ultimately needed and he slipped to third place. Third place in the Golfer of the Year and the Captains Prize remains a pretty notable outcome for the season!

A torrid front nine for Tom also cost him dearly and in the end he had to settle for fourth place on the Merit list. A super season nevertheless Tom!

And so it was Roy who yet again clinched the Golfer of the Year title. An excellent outward nine of nett 35 had really set the challenge for Sean and three pars and a birdie from 10 through 13 seemed to settle the issue. However, a little wobble over the last five holes introduced some Fetherston squeaky bum time, but a nett 73 brought ten Order of Merit points and another well deserved title.

Congratulations Roy, another year of brilliant and consistent golf and thank you to all the contenders for making Roy sweat a little!
