More fine weather ensured there were plenty of perticipants for the Brosnan Boylan Golden Singles stableford competition at Mallow Golf Club last weekend. With 220 competitiors taking to the fairways at Ballyellis for the two-day event, this was always likely to be a keenly fought affair with good scoring assured thanks to the quality on show and the ideal conditions.
Top of the class was 20 handicapper Aidan Cahill who claimed top honours with a terrific tally of 45 points. He was in top form - racking up 24 points on the back nine which helped him take take this title by one point from the chasing pack.
Kieran Conway (11) claimed the category 1 prize with 42 points with Roy Whelan (14) taking the spoils in the category 2 section thanks to his 40 points. Philip Comyn (19) took home the prize in category 3, which was some consolation after recording a very impressive 44 points during his round in the more difficult Sunday conditions.
The round of the weekend went to Patrick Daly (1) who tamed the par 72 championship course with 40 points which is the equivalent of a 3 under par round. Daly's reward was yet another Gross prize, which was the least he deserved for his superb effort. The final prize of the weekend went to Jonathon O'Callaghan (8) and Eamon Nagle (17) who took the best Saturday and Sunday awards respectively. Alan Wilson bagged a hole in one at the short par 3 16th. Wilson's effort means that he joins an illustrious and short band of local golfers that have managed the feat over the years.
