Thursday 26 November

This was Felix Duffy’s third win in the sweep competitions this year.

This one was played over eleven holes and that suited Felix perfectly.

1st- Felix Duffy (21) 27 pts.

2nd- Patrick McAleenan (23) 26 pts.

Saturday 28 November

The weather was foul and only 11 holes were open on Saturday.

Those two factors contributed to the rather low turnout of players.

The experienced Gerry Blevins went round in only 3 over par gross and that gave him a winning score of 30 points. A strong finish meant that Gerry beat Kenny Jones on countback.

1st- Gerry Blevins (18) 30 pts

2nd- Kenny Jones (19) 30 pts

3rd- Richard Coburn (11) 30 pts

4th- Rory Madeley (5) 28 pts
