On Sunday we saw some excellent golf played in our Senior Scratch Cup. After 18 holes Matthew McClean took a narrow lead shooting an excellent 68 edging a 1 shot ahead of our own Castleknock member Paul Coughlan. Matthew finished the back 9 with a superb -3 under par in his first round.
The conditions closed in slightly in the early part of the second round making it more challenging for those heading out. The scores were tight and Alan Doherty came out on top with the best second round score of 69. He finished with a flurry with an eagle on 16th and birdie on the 18th.
For the overall prize it came down to the wire with Paul finishing -2 under par for the last 3 holes to force a count back.
A special mention is needed to our sponsors on the day to make the day possible. John Newcombe from Newcombe estates, John and Karl Craven from Alliance Auctioneers, Mick Galvin and Bernard Hudson.
