Captain’s Prize – Pat Brady Wins by 5.

Having opened with a stellar 66 nett (4 shot lead) Pat Brady lead from the front and in the end won by 5. Pat showed his resilience to win following a disappointing start which saw him dropping 6 shots in the first 4 holes resulting in his overnight lead being dwindled down to just 2 shots at that point.

Pat steadied the ship with a couple of pars and a birdie on 8. In the end played the remainder of the round in just 3 over par leaving him with a 70 nett to leave no doubt as to who the deserving winner was.

The closest challenger on the day was Niall O’Connor (4) who shot 69 nett but even with this effort only managed to gain one shot on the winner. Other notable scores include Vincent Chapman (70), Dave Callaghan (71), Diarmuid McCarthy (72), Darach Nugent (73) which all pushed them up the leaderboard and into the winners enclosure.
