The Barber wins Carrick Golf Club Captain’s Prize
Michael Masterson aka The Barber, won Damien Duignan’s Captain’s Prize on Sunday 31 July 2016. Masterson lying fourth after the 36 hole qualifier on 135, four shots behind leading 36 hole qualifier Brian Beirne on 131. The Barber went round the final 9 in 32.5 shots giving him a 45 hole total of 167.5 to win by one from Tommy Aherne who finished on 168.5, the triple bogey on 2nd hole & double on 8th ultimately costing Tommy the title. Brian Beirne who hadn’t had a double bogey in the first 36 holes ran up a 12 on the second in the final 9 to effectively end his chances, he did however win the 36 hole nett prize. Nathan Flynn won the Gross on 192, Gordon Kavanagh was third with 171.5 and John Coffey fourth with 172.
The Categories went to Paul Roche, John Moffatt & Pascal McGuire, the 9’s to Keith Duignan, Declan Loftus & Tom Daly. The longest drive & nearest the pin was won by the McDermott brothers Mark for long drive and Kevin nearest the pin.
Sean Bohan won the 36 hole gross prize with 153 and Johnny Martin won past captains prize. So a very successful weekend, well done to Captain Damien for a great array of prizes and he even managed to organize the weather.
Well done to Michael Masterson on a superb win, the way he handled the pressure on the final nine will have Captain Sean Gilmartin pencilling him in for The Cecil Ewing.
Also The Barber had a fiver on himself at 100/1 so the €500 win was a extra bonus and a most generous gesture he donated €100 back to the club. Thank you Mick!
