Hughes keeps on winning track

Even from the white competition markers, there seems no stopping Darren Hughes.

The 10-handicapper picked up first prize for a second consecutive week in Saturday's club stroke competition with a superb 64 nett score.

After an unsteady start with shots dropped at the first and second holes, Darren settled into some par scoring - although he did drop another shot at the difficult fifth hole. This was however, well recovered with a birdie four at the 10th and with just a further two shots dropped at 14 and 15 his consistency was to be deservedly rewarded with first prize.

Two triple bogeys at the first and last holes ultimately denied Neil Monaghan the winning score. After a lacklustre front nine Neil got it together for the back nine where he recorded consecutive birdies at the par three 11th and par five 12th holes. And with a sprinkiling of pars he finished with a nett 66 to claim the runners up prize.

In Category 1 Mark Loughran was the player in form winning with a nett 67. Just one over after nine holes, his back nine was to include an eagle three at the par five 12th hole, and but for dropped shots at the 11th, 15th, 17th and 18th holes it might have been Mark picking up the top prize. Barry McGurgan was runner up in this category with a nett 68, his round including a birdie at the 12th hole.

In Cateogry 2 Gareth Frizell claimed the prize with an impressive nett 66, birdies at the sixth and eighth holes pushing Eamon O'Hagan into runners up spot with a nett 67.

And in Category 3 it was Gary O'Reilly who picked up first prize with a nett 66, with Ian Ritchie runner up with an excellent nett 67.

Conor McGurgan won the Gross Prize with a superb 72.
