The PD Golf sponsored Spring League has commenced with most pairs having completed their first match by Sunday last.
In group one Michael Simon and Tom Lavin are best placed with a four hole win over their opponents.
Wins were also recorded by Gary Carty and Carmel Keenan and by Shane Loftus and Regina McLoughlin who finished 2 up and 1 up respectively.
In group 2 Brendan Gaffney and Margaret Loftus lead the way with a three hole win. They are followed by Jim Dwyer and Tommy King who recorded a score of 2 up.
In group 3 the pairing of Charlie O’Donnell and Fiona Keenan finished 3 up after 12 holes, a score which currently tops that group. Vincent Egan and Lewis Shaw occupy second place after a one hole win.
Finally in the fourth group, Paddy McLoughlin and Mandy Toolan registered the greatest margin of victory to date with a 6 up win while in second is Michael Rush and Club Captain Gerry O’Hara who won their match 4 up.
The format of the competition is such that it is likely that all teams will have a chance of qualifying for the final right up until the last couple of rounds as standings can change quickly so all is not lost for those who did not win their first game!
All five group matches are to be played by Saturday 25th February.
Last week’s weekly 9 hole competition was won by Jim Mooney with 18 points.
Spring League matches are up for decision again this week with the suggested order for round 2 are pairs 3 vs 4, 6 vs 1 and 2 vs 5 in each group.
The weekly 9 hole stableford re-entry will also continue this week and can be played any day Monday through to Sunday inclusive.
