Farrell and Nugent win the Spring League

Sean Farrell and Darach Nugent have won the Spring League. Eddie Ingram and Dave Callaghan took Sean and Darach on, in an excellent match on a cold Saturday morning. Eddie and Dave played some brilliant golf and it was easy to see how they had marched into the final, on the front 9 Farrell and Nugent were always scrapping to keep with the pace. The match turned all square and there was a defining moment on the 10th green. Eddie had stuck a wedge to within a foot and the birdie was given, to get a half Nugent needed to sink a 50+ foot putt or Farrell needed to hole a 30 foot chip. Nugent stepped up and sank the putt, getting the most unlikely of halves. The 11th was won by Nugent with a four, putting Farrell and Nugent 1 up for the first time in the match. The 12th was halved by Sean and Eddie, both parring. Nugent parred 13 for the win, bringing them to 2up. Eddie and Sean again halved the par 3 with par. Nugent parred 15 and 16 to win the match 4&2 on the 16th green. An excellent match played in great spirits and enjoyed by all. The Spring League has been a huge success and was enjoyed by all competitors, it was great to see the camaraderie and friendships formed by the competition format.
