KING HARMON QUALIFIERS – The second qualifier competition took place on Sunday the 13th of October. The top 8 scorers from the series of qualifiers (aggregate of their 2 best cards over the 3 weeks) go through to the knockout stages of the King Harmon Cup. Conditions were excellent overhead with placing underfoot, resulting in some high scores which will most likely influence the overall aggregates. Padraig O’Connell was this weeks winner, and his impressive 44 points gives him a real chance of qualifying. Brendan Gaffney was second with 41, which in addition to his 38 from last week almost certainly secures him a place in the final 8. Other significant movers this week were 3rd placed Michael McHale on 39 points, followed by defending champion Mark Whelan’s 38. There are a number of players tightly bunched on similar aggregates so next weeks competition will be keenly contested.
