Both finals of the Winter League took place last weekend and in the qualifiers section, Cormac Doherty & Leo Sheehy took the title by defeating Nathaniel & Francis McGrory 3 &2.
There was some excellent golf played in this match and Cormac & Leo went one up at the 3rd only for Nathaniel & Francis to level it again at the 4th. The rest of the front 9 holes were halved in regulations and everything was all square going into the back 9.
When both Nathaniel & Francis missed their par putts at the 10th hole Cormac & Leo took full advantage by going par, birdie and par at the next three holes to go three up and maintained this advantage over the remaining holes.
Congratulations to Cormac & Leo as they played some tremendous golf throughout the competition and deserve their position as winter league champions.
In the non-qualifiers section, Stephen Fitzpatrick & Seamus Mc Gee beat Hugh Doherty & Tony Mc Sherry 3&1. This match was also a close affair with Stephen & Seamus taking a 1 hole lead into the back nine.
Hugh & Tony could never get back on level terms and with Stephen & Seamus two up with two to play the big-hitting Stephen Fitzpatrick secured the victory and title with a fantastic birdie at the 17th hole.
