Tony Powers to win in Close Finish at Prehen.


The early starters had the best of the weather in the Sunday Stableford at Prehen and Mr Tony McDermott(14) made the most of the benign conditions to post an unbeatable 40 points total. An outward half of 21 points was the foundation of his score and he kept his head to add a further 19 points on the closing holes to claim a one shot lead over the second place finisher. That prize went to Trilby Tour participant Mr Christopher Ross(8) whose 39 points was  a model of consistency. Third spot went to the resurgent Mr Gavin Morren on 38 points. Recently returned to pursue the honoured game Mr Morren is proving a force to be reckoned with and, but for ‘rusty” mistakes at the relatively easy par 5 7th, “Dermot’s” and the deceptive Par 4 16th,”’The Widow’s” where he failed to record any score, he would surely have claimed the top spot. The best Gross of the day was that of 4-handicapper Mr Graham Hepburn who toured the course in a mere 73 shots. Ms Marie Clifford claimed the Ladies Prize on 34 points.
