April 21st Westport

Westport Results:

Fourteen golfers competed over the two outings in Westport last weekend and as expected a good time was had by all. Weather was dry and warm and both golf courses were in excellent condition.

Well done to those who won prizes over the two days:

1st Richard Kennedy 33pts
2nd Alan Rock 32pts
1st Pat Connell 36pts
2nd Declan Smith 35pts


Joe Brady Cup

As you are aware the away trip is the occasion where the Joe Brady Cup is up for grabs. Played over two outings the trophy goes to the best combined stableford score.

As you can see from above Richard went into a narrow lead on Friday winning the Ballinrobe game with 33pts. Including Alan there were six players within five points of the lead by close of business on day one.

Some very determined performances were delivered at Westport Golf Club on Saturday. Friday’s results indicated that a score in the mid-thirties might just be enough to lift the trophy. Six players finished with combined scores of 60pts or more.

Congratulations to Pat Connell who not only won the day on Saturday but also lifted the Joe Brady Cup for 2017 !

Best combined scores for the weekend were:

Pat Connell            65 pts

Alan Rock              64pts

Richard Kennedy  63pts
