The sun shone on the competitors in the Mid Ulster Seniors Alliance meeting at Lisburn Golf Club on Monday as Pearse McBride hit the shot of the day.

At the short fourth, where he had a hole in one. He helped his partner reach the turn with 21 points but unfortunately the magic deserted them on the back nine.

Ten teams were competing in the first competition for the new season.

Ian MacDonald and Ivor McCandless were Lisburn’s top scorers in the Seniors with 40 points.

They were well supported by Ken Burns and Fred Walsh and Jim Cunningham and Sep Zwahlen with 39 points each. Their total of 118 points was two behind County Armagh.

It was all in stark contrast to Saturday, when after a few hours of play the course became unplayable. The very popular Mark McKinstry Fourball Betterball competition had to be postponed.
