Early Starters On Top

Two of the renowned early bird starters took full advantage of the freshly cut greens on the immaculately prepared course to post their great scores in the weekly Thursday Open and when the counting was all done they were in first and second place with 40 points and had to be separated by a tie break. Tom McClintock (10) had the superior back nine of 22 points, birdies at “Foyle” and “The Quarry” helping him considerably to claim first place over Alan "Bean" Simpson (8) who ruined his winning chance with a disastrous double bogey on “Aintree”. Anthony Faulkner (18) finished in third place with 39 points, two blanks on the front nine a story of what might have been. Paul McGuigan (2) from Foyle won the gross prize, a two over par 72 doing the job for him. Brian Northey (5) from Ballyliffin took home the visitor's prize with 35 points. Thursday Opens continue at Prehen until October.
