ANTHONY Thompson produced the goods at Greencastle on Sunday to claim the McCauley Cup, sponsored by McCauley Properties having recorded 39 points to win by one.

The competition enjoyed a good turnout despite the final day of the Irish Open at Royal Portrush.

The 14 handicapper carded five consecutive pars on the back nine to give him the winning total.

A break of tie was called upon to identify second and third places and Martin Harvey (15), had the better back nine and finished runner-up with John McCartney (13) next best in third.

Willie Havlin continued his current form to win the grosss prize with 32 points and the ‘nines’ went to Danny McGonigle (21 pts.) and Terence McMenamin (22 pts.) respectively.

The club extends its sincere thanks to the competition’s loyal sponsors.

Tomorrow (Saturday) Culdaff Football Club will host a special Golf Classic to commemorate their 40th year in existence. The timesheet is almost filled to capacity, but the few remaining slots can be reserved by contacting the club.

Sunday’s competition is the Leonard Bovaird Singles Stroke, another long standing fixture the club’s calendar. It is the next in the ‘Player of the Year’ events and things are still tight at the top. Currently leading the way is John McLaughlin with 58 points, with Willie Havlin next best on 50. In third place is Sean McQuillan on 42 with Colm Doherty next on 41 points.

The timesheet for Captain’s Day has now been posted on the notice board and starting slots can be reserved by contacting the club.

Members are reminded that they must have returned three cards from qualifying competitions at Greencastle to be eligible to play.
