A recent weekend of pairs and team events at County Armagh Golf Club gave players a rare chance to pool their talents in the hunt for honours.
In a Four-Ball Better-Ball competition on Saturday 14 April, a deadly duo of Laurence Corr and the in-form Oliver Connell emerged triumphant with 46 points.
That total kept them one clear of runners-up Leo King and Philip Dowey who, on account of their superior back-nine performance, pushed Gareth Reilly and Gavin McArdle into the bronze medal position.
The following day, a Four-Ball Team Classic saw the high-quality quartet of Tom Fox, Michael Cullen, John Vernon and Kieran Campbell rack up a massive 106 points to secure a comfortable victory.
Sunday's second place was filled by Mark Frazer, Jim McMullan, Andrew Conn and Philip Russell on 99 points.
Meanwhile, the same score was registered by Geoff McCartney, Johnny Brown, Norman Mallon and Colin Clarke, who had to settle for third place after losing out on a break of tie.
Such tournaments provide a welcome break from golf's inherent selfishness but, with the 2018 campaign's first qualifier having since been played, pursuit of individual glory will be the priority from here on in.
County Armagh's final par 3: the 13th, Rokeby Green.
