It was a great day for Tralee last Saturday at the Munster Scotch Foursomes, which they hosted, as it was one of three big events held locally in the past week. Of the ten prizes on offer on Saturday, seven were won by the club.

Paul O’Shea and Keith O’Brien were tournament winners with a score of 98 points, four clear of their nearest challengers as two pairs from the club tied on 94 points for second. A better Back 18 of 48 points gave Jamie Blake and Danny O’Leary second officially as despite missing out on the prize Jason Cregan and Alan Hobbert would claim the Gross with a score of 92. The First 18 prize was won by Darren Goodall and Roger Guthrie after they post a good start of 47 points while father and son Jason and Mark O’Regan won the second 18 with 49 points.

In the Mixed section the winners were from the Rocklodge club in Cork as Mary Murray and John Tracey with a score of 91 points, three clear of Lakeside, Templemore pair Elaine Quinn and Mick Fennell on 88 points in second. The Gross prize went to Tralee’s Lisa O’Connor and Tony Blake on 75 points as a start of 47 points gave Riverdale Nenagh pair Liz Forde and Michael Abbot the First 18 prize. The final prize of the day was won by Tralee’s Majella and Brian Moynihan, that being the Second 18 in the Mixed on 43 points.
