Alan Crockard was the big winner of the Brendan Connolly Memorial Cup at Lambeg Golf Club this week.
He took top spot with a very impressive 41 points, just enough to pip Chris Johnston, who came second on 40 points.
Shooting nine under your handicap is always an impressive score.
That’s what Glen Hunter did on Saturday and unsurprisingly, it was enough to claim first in the weekly competition.
He was a full three points clear of his nearest challengers Raymond Rodgers and Colin Higgins. Raymond did enough to secure second on countback.
The best gross on the day, meanwhile, went to Ivor Harron.
Lambeg’s Ulster Cup team have given themselves an uphill struggle in the return match at Cairndu next week.
That because they lost the first leg at home. The visitors put in an impressive display to come away with a 4-3 victory, although it could have been so much worse for his .
Cairndu went into a 4-0 lead but a tremendous fight back with wins from Victor McComb (seven and five, Ian Jefferson (six and five) and Ernie McAleenan (three and two) kept Lambeg in the game and gave them an outside chance of progressing to the next round.
