Legal Eagle Lands Captain's Prize

In  poor weather conditions, which  everyone had for at least part of their round, local Solicitor Pat McMyler swept the boards to win Mr Bosco Reid's Captain's prize by a huge margin of four shots.

On a day when even the ducks refused to venture out, 198 members of North West G.C. took to the fairways to show their appreciation for the popular and hard working Captain. With a strong wind and constant heavy rain sweeping across the golf course,  and with play  off the 'Back Markers'  scoring was very difficult. Sean G O'Kane lead for most of the day with a well compiled 37 point. It was a score most thought would be  enough to win the coveted prize. However, late in the afternoon, Vincent Grant (jnr) playing off a 7 handicap, returned  a fantastic score of 38 Pts.. Vincent played the last 10 holes in level par. With only 16 competitors left on the course it looked likely that Vincent would lift the most sought after prize at North West G.C.  That was  until Pat McMyler came in with an astonishing score of 42 Pts. Pat had accumulated 24 Pts on the front nine, helped by a birdie 2 at the 162 yd 3rd hole played into a fierce wind. The back/nine added 18 pts to Pat's score dispite a no-score at the easiest hole on the course the 90 yd par 3 'The Fairy' where Pat had some 'Bunker Trouble'.
At the presentation in a packed clubhouse on Saturday night, the Captain's speech was very well recieved by the assembled members, visiting Captains, and guests, and a well deserved 'standing ovation'  for a very popular Captain.
