He’s more commonly seen on the first tee, or possibly on hand when a ruling is needed. Most weekends he’s watching golf rather than playing it, but last weekend Dave Prendergast swapped his Munster colours for club colours and won the Cork Golf Club Intermediate Scratch Cup. Prendergast, who is the Honorary Match & Handicapping Secretary for Munster Golf, shot an impressive 67 to win the competition. His gross nine over (81) included a birdie on the third and a great run of six pars on the back nine. It was the back nine that won it for Dave, Cork’s Donal Mulvihill also finished on 67 while Mahon’s Eoghan O’Mahony took third place. Aidan Carroll won the best gross prize with 83.
Macroom recently held the presentation for their scratch cup and the winners were Tom Tupper (Junior Scratch Cup), Derek Murray (Intermediate Scratch Cup), and Dean O’ Riordan from Fermoy Golf Club (Senior Scratch Cup). Muskerry will hold their Junior Scratch Cup next Saturday and there are some limited times still available, details are available online or from the club.
