It doesn't happen very often but Gary Morris pulled it off on Saturday last at Bundoran Golf Club by winning back-to-back Captains' prizes.
He had to rely on a break of tie to overcome the Course Superintendent Terence McShea and sometimes footballer Diarmuid McInerney.
Had McShea an advantage after getting up early on Saturday morning to set out the pin positions?
However, it was the 17th which was the downfall of both McShea and McInerney, putting being the problem for McShea while McInerney, just five over par on the tee, found the bank with his drive and took a 7.
Morris took full advantage to win on countback. However, his was not the best score of the day. That was recorded by newcomer Stephen McLaughlin with a nett 60.
Apart from a heavy downpour around 4 pm, it was a great day with refreshments provided for all participants on the 9th tee.
There was a good night in the clubhouse on Saturday night as Donagh Keon's great array of prizes were presented.
The full results for Captain#s Day were:
1st Gary Morris 66 (BoT); 2nd Stephen McLaughlin 60; 3rd Terry McShea 66 (BoT); 4th Diarmaid McInerney 66.
