Mr Captain’s Prize (Mr Clive Brolly)

Shaky Loughlin recovers to claim Clive Brolly’s Captain’s Prize.


There was a large turnout to contest popular Captain Mr Clive Brolly’s Captain’s Prize on Saturday at Prehen. Played off the White Sticks and in blustery conditions the smart money was on low-handicappers dominating proceedings but the outcome proved much different! Mr Stephen Loughlin(19) played the game of his life to win with a fine 39 points. Mr Loughlin recovered from a brace of double bogies on the first two holes to post an outward nine of 19 points. He topped that off with a nerve-jangling homeward nine of 20 points to post his winning total.

Second prize was claimed by Mr Michael McShane(23) with balanced 19 points halves for his total of 38 points. Mr Terry Coyle(8) went one better than his President’s Day feat of “Best of the Veterans” by claiming third spot on Captain’s Day with a fine 36 points. Indeed, there were a host of 36 pointers that had to be separated by BOT. Eight-handicapper Mr Adrian Leckey’s 36 points eventually captured fourth prize. Mr Ernie Heywood(1) took the Best Gross with 33 points, Mr John Love’s 36 points meant that he landed the Category 6-12 prize, Mr John Woods found his 34 was the best in the Category 13-17 and Mr Christopher Wilson took the accolades for the +18 Category.

Mr William Acheson lifted the Veteran’s Prize on this occasion with 34 points, the Best of the Visitors was Mr Chris Kelly, three-handicapper Mr Peter Hasson’s 35 points stamped his name on the Young Adult Prize and Mr Luke Hasson claimed the Non-Qualifer’s prize. In the Captain’s Prize to the Ladies Ms Louise Peoples was first, Ms Pamela Rutherford was second and third spot went to Ms Karen Jackson.

 

In his Prize Presentation speech Captain Clive Brolly thanked the greens and bar staff for all their hard work that had contributed to the success of the day and praised the honorary Secretary, Mr Shane Kelly, and other members of the Club Council who have assisted him throughout the year. He concluded his remarks by thanking his wife and family for all their support.
