Donie tames the blessed Nine but not the beard

Donie MeEvoy (10) just might make beards fashionable again, “but they are” i here you all say, metaphorically of course. The bearded one tamed our blessed nine, (actually it is his) by taking only 77 blows to get from the 1st tee to holing out on the last green. this translated into 41 points on the Beaufort scale…sorry thats wind….the stableford scale.  It was a tight run affair with Donie having to birdie 2 of his last 4 holes to take 1st place on the count back from the Kelly clan in hot pursuit. Richard Senior (20) also had a magnificent 41 pts on Sunday morning while also keeping manners Richard Jnr (11) who finished 3rd with 40 pts. Great scoring gentlemen, inter club managers take note. I am delighted that both Richards got into the prizes last weekend they travel a long way each week to play and support the club, fair play guys. Another excellent field of 80 or so competed at the weekend and credit where credit is due not one NR.
