The third round of the match play stages took place last weekend in the Owen McDaid (Roe) Mini Bus & Taxi Hire Winter League.
The match of the weekend between the top qualifiers Fiáchra O’ Flaherty and Martin Doherty against Jonny Bonner & Paul McDaid lived up to expectations.
This match was a very tight game with both pairings playing some great golf but Fiáchra and Martin came out on top to progress to the quarter-finals. The evergreen Mickey Mc Cann and Oliver Doherty also had a very tight match against the match play novices Garbhan Fullerton & Emmet Friel.
With Mickey and Oliver one up with two to play the pressure was on Garbhan & Emmet but they won the 17th with a nett birdie to take the match to the 18th Hole.
However, the ever consistent and club golfer of the year Oliver Doherty managed to birdie the 18th hole to take himself and Mickey into the quarter-finals. In the non-qualifiers section, the match of the round was between Ronald Longwill and Owen Doherty against Shaun Devlin and Henry McDaid it took a tie hole to separate both pairings with Ronald and Owen eventually progressing to the quarter-finals.
The draw for the qualifiers quarter-finals is as follows:
Jim Caldwell & Ciaran Mc Laughlin v John Doherty and Mickey Healy,
Liam O’ Donnell and Barry Dillon v Oliver Doherty and Mickey Mc Cann
