No Opportunity for Crowley or O’Keeffe in rain affected Munster Over 30’s

Poor weather forced the abandonment of the the Munster Over 30’s final round this morning.  The heavy overnight rain meant that the course in Ballyclough was unplayable for the final round.

Sean Poucher was a deserving winner based on the opening day.  He had an eagle and two birdies in his opening round on Friday.  His 69 was enough to get him over the line as the winner by one stroke from Peter O’Keeffe.  This is O’Keeffe’s third time to claim a runner up spot this season and even though he’ll be disappointed, it does prove that his game is still good enough to compete at the top amateur level.  Pat Murray also left a calling card, his third place was down to shooting a low round of 70 on Friday afternoon.  Keith Crowley (Fota Island) took fifth place and Kenny McGarry (Castlemartyr) and Gary O’Flaherty (Cork) were just outside the top 10.

Attention now turns to Macroom, the mid-Cork club are hosting a 36 hole senior scratch cup next Saturday, bookings and full details are available from the club.
