No trouble for George!

Despite the blustery conditions, George Gillespie encountered little trouble on his way to winning the April Medal on Saturday with an excellent nett 63.

The par three 9th was really the only hole which caused the affable George any bother - he carded a trible bogey six and that after firing his tee shot to the edge of the green! However, three birdies at the 1st, 12th and 14th holes with eight excellent pars saw him claim the honours at the end of the day.

Neill Monaghan with a nett 63 also was runner up on countback - a double bogey six at the 17th hole cost him dearly, although anything less than his triple bogey six at the third hole might also have guaranteed the recent competition winner a return to the winners enclosure.

In the categories, it was Kenny Edgar who led the way with a nett 67 to win Category 1 - ironically it was double bogeys at the par three 9th and 12th holes which cost him. Master Niall Brady was runner up with a nett 68. He was just two over after nine holes but the wheels came off at the 16th where a triple-bogey seven ruined an otherwise excellent card.

Fred Hanna's better back nine - and nett 69 - secured him the first prize in Category 2 where Colm Shannon also returned a nett 69.

And in Category 3 Stephen McGarvey was the clear winner with a nett 65 with John Grant five shots adrift in the runners up spot with a nett 70.

Neill Cromwell's nett 70 deservedly won the Gross Prize on the day.
