Gary O’Flaherty captured his fourth Lee Valley Scratch Cup title over the weekend after completing a comfortable six-stroke win after 54-holes of competition.
The Cork man produced rounds of 70, 68 and 72 to run out a worthy winner on a 210 total, beating Douglas player James Walsh into second place.
An impressive field lined out for the return of the Lee Valley Scratch Cup after a two-year absence due to the pandemic. Dean O’Riordan pipped Ian Bohane to the final place on the podium with a 219 tally while another Douglas star, Karl Bornemann grabbed outright fifth spot to follow up his runner-up finish to Jody Fanagan in the Irish Senior Men’s Amateur Open on Friday.
Over 60 players teed up in the event over the weekend with O’Flaherty etching his name on a the famous cup for a fourth time alongside the likes of Shane Lowry who won the event in 2009 just weeks prior to his Irish Open victory.
Congrats to everyone at the club for putting on a great event and to Boyle Sports who came on board as sponsors with the Scratch Cup offering an impressive prize fund of €2,500.
