Old Conna’s Neil O’Briain and local assistant Gary McGrane took the spoils with three-under par 67s at the PGA southern branch pro only four-ball event in Sutton Golf Club on Monday.
34 players braved some horrendous weather and conditions were duly very tough. The winners on the day were local assistant McGrane and experienced touring pro O’Briain with the pair shooting the lights out given the weather.
Both players traded six birdies and three bogeys amongst their fine efforts and edged out another McGrane – Damien – who tied for second alongside Paddy McGuirk, Eoin O’Brien and Craig Melvin.
Competitors lauded the condition of the course given the recent weather and time of year, credit to the work of ground staff and the decision of the club to implement mats throughout winter.
Also confirmed over the weekend is the second staging of the hugely popular and innovative 9 hole matchplay event to be held over 3 days and preceded by a 9 hole pro am.
The event is set for the 25th to 27th of September and Annesley Williams are again delighted to headline sponsorship.
The Southern branch will have another outing in Mullingar in the next month with the date to be confirmed.
