Nineteen seemed to be the best handicap to be on at Greencastle
over the weekend as the winners on both Saturday and Sunday proved.
On Saturday, in the Hunter Apparel Solutions Open, Michael
McLaughlin belied his high handicap by birdieing the third, fourth
and fifth holes to set up a front nine of 24 points and record his
maiden victory. Hugh Casey took the runner-up prize on break-of tie
from Paul McCole. Helena Doherty just pipped Pauline Casey to win
the Ladies event. Full results were:
Hunter Apparel Solutions L & G Open Singles S/F, Saturday 22nd
1st Michael McLaughlin (19) 41;
2nd Hugh Casey (12) 39;
3rd Paul McCole (7) 39;
Gross Jason McLaughlin (5) 33;

Back 9 Richard McKee (14) 20;

Two nineteen handicappers battled it out for the honours in the
Ferguson Fashions Confined Stroke event on Sunday last. And, again,
birdies were the order of the day for the eventual winner, Alan Orr,
who took just 3 shots to complete the first hole and only 2 shots at
Bovairds. Stephen McNiece took the runner-up prize for the second
weekend in a row, losing out by a single shot. Full results were as
Ferguson Fashions Gents Confined Stroke, Sunday 23rd April
1st Alan Orr (19) 63;

2nd 9 Kevin Thompson (9) 30.5.
The presentation of prizes for both competitions, along with the
Greencastle Masters event, was held on Sunday evening and the club
would like to thank Hunter Apparel Solutions, Ferguson Fashions and
the club’s trustees for their generous and ongoing sponsorship.
