Brian Mulholland shot a superb round of 39 points at the Mid-Ulster Senior Alliance,

Round three of the Mid-Ulster Senior Alliance was played at Lisburn Golf Club last Monday.

The weather was not good, very cold and plenty of rain.

The Banbridge team, captained by Dougie Stevenson, played early and possibly got the best of the day, weather wise.

Brian Mulholland, who knows this course like the back of his hand, shot one of the best individual rounds of the day, a superb 39 points.

Sydney Pepper was well pleased with his score, 34 points.

Norman Doak was third best with 32 points.

The fourth counting card came courtesy of Fergie Cosgrove, 28 points.

The Banbridge team total was 133 points, seven short of their target of 140. But, nevertheless, it was a commendable effort and one that keeps the team in contention for honours.

The other four members of the team were John Redpath, Roy Rankkin, John Poots and Dougie Stevenson.

Round four of the MUSA will be played at Banbridge on Wednesday the 17th of June.

The team has already been selected.

Brian Mulholland, Sydney Pepper, Norman Doak and Fergie Cosgrove keep their places as the top four finishers at Lisburn.

In come Aidan Doran, Seamus McGrath, Philip Strong and Merton McDowell.

They will be hoping for a massive score over their home course.
