A low-key weekend for golf as Storm Dennis battered the countryside, resulting in competitions being abandoned on both Saturday and Sunday at Portsalon Golf Club.
Hopefully the very wintery conditions will have subsided by the coming weekend.
The hugely popular Winter Open Series sponsored by Auto Fast Fit Letterkenny and Michelin Tyres is heading towards the final straight, with two remaining events on February 22nd and March 7th.
The leaderboard is very tight with two more qualifiers and the prospect of double points scoring in Event 8 on March 7th.
Leading the way is last year’s winner Daniel Shields on 92 points. His lead is as slim as they come with Patrick McCloskey just a point behind on 91. The top four is completed by Noel Fisher (89) and Paul Given (84).
The top ten includes plenty dangers seeking to win the overall first prize, a set of Michelin Tyres worth €500, and it would be foolish to discount the likes of David McCormick (77), Sean Forbes (76), Seamus Patton (72) or Pascal Cullen (68).
The most recent event went to Donal Callaghan Snr, who is now inside the top ten on 73 points.
All to play for over the final two events in the Portsalon Winter Open Series before the overall winner gets to take himself to Auto Fast Fit for those brand new Michelin Tyres in mid-March!
