Letterkenny Golf Club: Nothing to ‘hamper’ Mark Howard at Barnhill!

first_imgWinning the Christmas dinner turkey is one thing but taking home the full week’s goodies is quite another and that’s exactly what Mark Howard [14] did on Sunday last following his 42pt return from his Saturday round.With the club’s Christmas Hamper being won by the best individual score over two days, Saturday and Sunday, Mark’s outward nine score of 23pts, one [1] over at the turn, had him stretching the field behind and, even though his birdie at 14th [Stackyard] was preceded by a ‘blank’ at Sheep Hill [12th] , his 19pts on inward nine was enough to ensure his palate would be well treated this year.Picture: Prizewinners from the Diver’s Hyundai Motors sponsored competition at Letterkenny Golf Club receiving their prizes from sponsor Gavin Flanagan.

In runner-up spot with 38pts, also achieved on Saturday, was incoming Captain Colin Morrow [22] whose back-to-back ‘blanks’ at Swilly [3rd] and Sliabh Sneacht [4th] left him in ponderous mood for back nine but a 23pt return had him relegate Brian Carney [24] to third place by virtue of B.O.T. with Brian’s 17pts on his inward nine not matching his creditable 21pts from first nine.In 4th place, again on B.O.T., was single figure handicapper Shane Scanlan [7] whilst gross prize was won by the ever-present Kieran Sweeney [6] with 31pts. gross.The best ‘day’ winners were M.P.O’Donnell [14] for Saturday with 37pts and Kevin Rafferty [7] for Sunday, also with 37pts.Following the success of last weekend’s competition which yielded an entry of almost one hundred and twenty, competitions has decided to run another ‘Christmas Hamper’ under the same guise as the former.
