Chris McCabe clicked into top gear on his way to winning the JR McMahon sponsored Allen Cup. The 11-handicapper had the round of his life posting a nett 61 to win by one. Chris was mistake-free over the opening nine holes, reeling off nine pars to reach the turn in level 34. His back nine was more mixed but two bogeys and double bogey were offset by fine birdies at the 11th and 14th.
Conor Hughes finished second, one shot back with a nett 62. The 27-handicapper posted rounds of 45/44 which included a birdie two at the par-three 11th. Andrew Allen, Conor McGuigan, Stephen Catterall, Jim McCreesh and Niall McCormack filled out the third to seventh places.
Adam Cromwell produced the best gross score of the day, a tidy 68.
Denis Hughes won the green marker competitions with 40pts, edging out Sammy MacNiece on countback.
Brian McGrady’s better back nine score gave him victory over Richard Black in Sunday’s Stableford. Brian finished on 40pts, as did Richard and third-placed Paul McKeown. Conor McGuigan, Eamonn O’Hagan and John Vernon filled the fourth to sixth places.
Philip Kelly claimed the gross with 37pts while John Lavery won the green marker competition with 37pts.
