In 1973, arguably the sport’s first global superstar was bowing-out of the Open Championship. Trust Gene Sarazen to sign off with a hole-in-one

Brian Casey was in top form to take top honours around Killeen Castle today in the first of their Nicklaus Winter Series.

The Headfort pro, defended his home Co. Meath soil against Tullamore professional Grehan with a score of 67(-5) with Grehan taking the best nett with a score of 68 (-4).

Play was delayed due to frost with the field of single figure amateurs and professional golfers teeing off from the signature par 5 – 12th hole. The leading pair, who partnered each other in a tight battle throughout, both turned their front 9 in 5 under par.

Grehan then bogeyed his tenth, the 3rd on the card, before adding a birdie on the par 5 7th (his 14th) and a bogey on the tough par 4 tenth (his 17th) to finish his back 9 in +1 for a total of 4-under 68.

Casey made no such mistakes however with a solid par-home finish around his back 9 to finish with an impressive 67.

Runner up spots in each category went to Rick Weldon (Black Bush) who finished with a 4-under 68 in a round that included 3 eagles (2, 7 & 12) and one birdie (17) but was ultimately beaten on a countback by Grehan for the top gross prize.

Cormac Ryan (1) from Killeen Castle took the Nett runner up prize with a level par 72 (Nett 71) while Donal Gleeson (Pro – Old Conna) and Shane McGlynn (Scr – Portmarnock) took the third place prize in the respective Gross and Nett categories.

The next Nicklaus Series event at Killeen Castle takes place on Friday November 16th.
