Close to 40 Scramblers took to the fairways this evening in glorious golfing conditions - and the scoring was 'hot' also.
As I partnered up with Enda Daly in the last 'fourball' Tom O'Shea , who was in earlier, did his usual expert job of scrutineer on the scorecards. Thanks Tom.
When I finished Tom had John and Mary Curley in the prizes with a good score of 28.6 but they were squeezed out at the last minute. So hard luck to them but we still got the opportunity to mark John's birthday with a slice of cake and a candle. Happy birthday John
Two other guys were celebrating tonight also. You may recall how last week I referred to Brendan Daly's quest to find the perfect golfing partner. That search may have been settled this evening as he renewed his partnership with Mick Curran. They scored the Best Gross of 32 a couple of weeks ago and tonight they had a 2, four 3s and four 4s for a fantastic round of 6 under par - 30. That will take some beating in the remaining three Scrambles for this summer. Well done Brendan and Mick.
This gave them a Net score of 28.2 and second place this evening.
The winners tonight were in the last fourball to come in - and it wasn't Enda and John!. Joe Piggott and Declan Byrne had a super score of 27.4. Congratulations to them.
Same time next week.
Regards, Ann & John Horan
