Top man Tom in Winter League

The winter league got underway last week in Blacklion. Thirteen teams of 5 players will compete over 8 weeks with the best three scores over the 14 holes counting for points each week. The teams seem evenly matched and team captains will look to ensure that all team members play every week.

Team 1 is sure to contend for a top four finish with captain Kevin McPartland and golfer of the year Michael McHugh likely to produce consistently good scores. Add to this the mercurial Danny McGovern, Paul Martin and Geraldine McGrory who is a renowned top player in the winter league and the team looks a good bet.

Team 5 took top honours in week one with an impressive score of 95 to take 13 points. Tom O’Connor produced a fantastic 37 points for the 14 holes. Peter Cumisky (30) and Gerry Gilmartin (28) were the other contributors.

Team 10 was in second place with Jim Leonard (34), Paul Ferguson (32) and Stephen Garvey (27).

Individual winners were Tom O’Connor and Jim Leonard.
