Fagan lays down a mark

Mark Fagan (13) played some fantastic golf on Sunday to win the Weekend open singles (April 30th/May 1st) with a score of 40 pts. Mark had 2 pts to spare over the bearded one himself Donie McEvoy (10) who finished on 38pts. Donie pipped Paul Culligan  (9) on the count back after Paul also returned a score 38 pts. Another good turnout again at the weekend despite some pretty MALOGEN weather. Well done Mark half of my  1st pairing out in the Pierce Purcell sorted methinks. Early in 15 Mark was playing off a mark of 16 Mark is now operating off 12 having reduced his handicap by 4 in about 14 months, surely its only a matter of time before Mark forces his way in to Provincial towns and Barton cup panels.Some matchplay results have reached my Billy Joes (ears)…. Billy Joe spears….Dave Callaghan beat Cormac Noone 1 up and Brendan Flynn beat Pat Reid by the same score well done guys. The rest of yiz that have not completed your matches  YOU really need to get them done by this week.
