Super Sunday scoring sensations
It might have been bonfire night elsewhere but it was all fireworks on Sunday with a day of spectacular scoring at Portsalon as prize-winners really had to earn their stripes!
Shaun Strain (10) was the overall winner on the day, carding a superb two-over par gross round of 74 to score 44 points and bag top spot.
Right on his tail was Kevin McGonagle (8) with an equally impressive 43 points after a one-over par score of 73 blows. Third spot went the way of Martin O'Reilly (26) on 42 points.
The gross prize on the day was won by Ryan McGettigan (Scr) after he went around in a bogey-free round of five-under for 67, enough for 41 pts.
Ryan's birdies came at the 5th and 8th on the way out and at holes 11, 14 and 17 on the way in for a sublime effort.
Such was the standard of golf on display on Sunday that Johnny Shields' two-under gross score of 70 missed out completely on the prizes! Tough school! Well done to all our prize winners.
