The third round of the Owen McDaid (Roe) Winter League took place last weekend and the format was two ball betterball.
With the greens in excellent condition and probably the best greens for putting on in Ulster there were plenty of opportunities to return good scores.
The best score of the weekend was 47 pts returned by two pairings, last years winners Leo Sheehy (16) and Cormac Doherty (18) and Damien Doherty (6) and Jonny Morison (8).
Both these pairings played some excellent golf but by virtue of a superior back nine last years champions Leo & Cormac took the weekly prize and have sent out a message to the rest of the pairings that they will not relinquish their title to easy.
The format this weekend Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October will be a two-ball scramble and if any pairings are still interested in playing they still can enter as there are plenty of opportunities to return the necessary scores.
