Monaghan Wins!


John Monaghan(17) was the easy winner on a fast-drying course in this week’s Thursday Society at Prehen. Carding a fabulous 23 points for the front nine, a total that included a superb birdie 3 four-pointer at the difficult Par 4 4th,”The Whins”,  John pilled on the pressure over the closing holes where he added a further fourteen points to finish on a brilliant 37 point total. A break-of-tie was required to separate the other two prize-winners when both Alan Simpson(7) and Richard Porter(16) carded 32 points apiece. The decision fell in favour of Richard and Alan will be left regretting his poor play on the easy Par 4 6th,” Swilken” and the trying Par 5 7th, “Dermot’s” where he failed to register a score when even a single measly rescued point would have given him second spot! But golf is an unforgiving mistress and Alan will have to wait until next week to make amends for his uncharacteristic errors.
