Michael O’Driscoll made it two wins for the family when he won the Junior Scratch Cup in Fota recently.  12 months ago Michael’s son Robert won the Junior Scratch Cup with a winning score of 74.  Another O’Driscoll name was added this year as Michael shot a winning 76 from the championship tees on the famous Deerpark Course.

O’Driscoll playing off a handicap of 7 was one clear of the field, which recorded a clean sweep for the home club.  Young gun Daniel Devlin was second with 77 (playing off 5) and Mike Moloney (6) shot a 78 to take third place.
