Castle Dargan Mens Golf Notes - 8th August 2016

Castledargan golf club notes
Castle Dargan have another pennant!!! And yet again it's down to our super juniors! Sean Carroll, Daragh Connolly, Patrick Callaghan and Conor Burke were the 4 lads who went to Ballina last Tuesday and captured the Connaught Junior Foursomes title - also qualifying them for an All-Ireland semi final against Leinster down in Clonmel in a few weeks. Yet another massive achievement for these lads as they put the name of Castle Dargan to the forefront of Irish Golf yet again, and I'm sure everyone at the club is hugely proud of them as always. Well done lads!!
Kenny Cup
And for three of our Connaught Junior Foursomes title winners Sean Carroll, Patrick Callaghan and Daragh Connolly the winning didn't stop there and gone and won another pennant for Castle Dargan on Friday last - this time winning the Kenny Cup for the third time for our club! Fantastic golf again by all three lads, especially as handicaps count in this competition and our lads are all pretty low. Again well done lads.
Junior Cup
Ray o Grady and his junior cup team were in Ballinrobe for the Connaght semifinal of the junior cup on Saturday last to take on Athenry but despite good golf and all matches decided on the 18th and 19th holes Athenry rallied to take the win. Well done to Ray and his team of Patrick, Darragh, Eoin, Kevin and Sean.
Fred Daly
Good luck to Fred Daly Captain Mervyn Keegan and his team of Patrick Callaghan, Darragh Connolly, Sean Carroll, Conor Burke and Ronan Cahill who take on County Sligo Golf Club in the Connaght Semifinal of the Fred Daly on Friday 12th in Galway.

Also at the end of the month Dermot will be hosting his Presidents Day on 28th Aug. One to keep your diary free for.
Golfer of the year
The golfer of the year standings at the moment is captains winner Brendan Deignan leading the way on 44pts. Tony Wasyalocha in second on 31pts and James Davey in third on 27pts. Still enough rounds involved to catch the leader but another couple of places from Brendan should see him out of sight. Let's see how it pans out.

Captains Day
Our club Captain Niall Walsh hosted his Captains Day on Sunday last.  With the weather staying kind it was still a tough task for all golfers with the blue tees back as far as they can go and some tricky pin positions on the greens. Still after all scores were in there were two men Ciaran Cryan and Aidrian Mc Goldrick the only men under par with James Davey one back on level par and Brendan Deignan, Kevin mc Carthy and Paul McGonigle one futher back on one over. Top 14 went out in the early evening with first out Gerard Tailly and Tony Ballintine followed by James Fallon, Martin Burke and Mervyn Keegan. Next out was Ray o Grady, Eoin Carroll and Tony Wasyalocha and then the top six of Paul, Brendan, Kevin and last James,Adrian and Ciaran. The weather got a little wet for the 9 hole playoff but it didn't dampen the spirits or the standard of the golf with the top six in the mix up to the final hole. With all scores in nothing could separate the top two of Ciaran Cryan and Brendan Deignan with it having to go to a countback of the playoff to settle it and it was Riverstown's favourite son Brendan Deignan who took the victory. Winning scores were 1st Brendan Deignan 109, 2nd Ciaran Cryan 109, 3rd Tony wasylocha 110, 4th Adrian Mc Goldrick 111, 5th James Fallon 112.
