Fintan was a clear 
two-point winner in weekly club event

Fintan McAreavey had a brilliant score of 44 points to win last weekend’s competition at Silverwood Golf Club.

On his front nine he had 21 points with two birdies on the seventh and eighth, one bogey at the first while the remaining holes were played in par.

His back nine was even better with two birdies on the 12th and 13th and no bogeys for 23 points and a two point victory.

In second place with 42 points was Gerald McCoy who had nines of 20 and 22 points.

Shane Mulholland was third with 41 points with nines of 19 and 22 points.

The gross prize was won again by Chris watt with another sub-par round of 71 with five birdies.

In fourth place was Paul Gilmore with 41 points. He had 19 points on his front nine and 22 points on his back nine.

Fifth place went to David Ewing again with 41 points.

The seniors’ prize went to Frank Gallagher with 41 points

Section prize winner were:

0-12, Colin Quinn, 41 points.

13-18, John Lawther, 41 points.

19-28, Paul W Hamill, 40 points.

There were 10 twos.

On the seniors front it was better news when the club hosted all 10 teams of the Mid-Ulster League clubs. Silverwood finished top on the day and further improved their hopes of a mid-table position by the end of the season. Best scores were the pairing of Brian Brady and Frank Gallagher with a magnificent 46 points and Dermot McCabe and Pete Graham with 40 points. It was a most encouraging display and it was comforting to have so many compliments on the condition and new lay-out of the golf course.
