Last Sunday saw the commencement of the Summer League and this resulted in a good win for Hugh O’Connor who continued his early season form by returning a solid 38 points in tricky conditions with the northerly wind continuing to make scoring difficult. Hugh, playing very solidly, had two nines of 19 points and just held off the challenge of Dermot Fennelly by a shot. Dermot scored only 15 points for his first nine holes but then turned on the style on his last nine holes by returning a further 22 points. In third place came Ted Hoyne with another 37 points only to lose second place to Dermot on a countback. The next round of the Summer League will take place next Sunday.
On the Inter Club scene, the ladies are doing battle with Borris this weekend in the Miele Fourball with two pairings at home and two pairings away. The result will be decided on matches won and holes won. The Pierce Purcell team are at Wexford in three weeks time to compete in the regional qualifying round and the panel are preparing for this important date. The Duggan Cup team will do battle against Callan on Wednesday next in the second round with the draw advantage favouring Callan.
On Wednesday next 8th May the May Ladies Invitation Day will take place and the format will be a four person team event. The following Sunday will see the May Monthly Medal down for decision and this is a Golfer of the Year event.
