Kenny McGarry won the Glengarriff Senior Scratch Cup on Sunday when he shot a two under par 64. McGarry (Castlemartyr) won by one shot from Glengarriff member David O’Sullivan. The local man had beaten McGarry several times in the past but on this occasion the Castlemartyr member finished on top.
McGarry got off to a good start with a birdie on the opening hole but a double bogey threatened to derail his round. He bounced back with a birdie on the next hole to get back to level par, and he added two more birdies at the 12th and 14th. It was an interesting round for McGarry, he broke his driver during Saturday’s President’s Prize in Castlemartyr, and had to make do with with his one iron to get around the track at Glengarriff.
It was McGarry’s third Senior Scratch Cup win, he won the Kinsale Scratch Cup back in 2005, the Heritage Scratch Cup last year, and the +1 handicapper is obviously back on form. He’ll be action with the Castlemartyr Senior Cup team in their preliminary match against Fermoy at Lee Valley (Senior Cup Draw).
