2016 National Seniors Gents Strokeplay

FOR the second time in three years Bellewstown's William Sheridan National Seniors Strokeplay Senior title after rounds of eight and 10 under par respectively gave him a winning total of 18 under par. This follows on from William’s win at Gaeil Colmcille back in 2014 and he was four clear of his nearest challengers at the end. Both Riverdale's Sean Minogue and Raffeen Creek's Barry Morrissey finished on 14 under with a better second round of eight under par giving Sean second place on countback.


            The Intermediate title will stay in Erins Isle for the second successive year as Charlie Egan succeeded club-mate Anthony Carroll as with a winning score of 15 under (eight under and seven under) as he also had four shots to spare over his nearest challenger Christy Hannon of St Bridgets in second on 11 under. After both shooting 10 under par, Collins' Jim Aherne got third place from Rocklodge's Des Quinn on countback with a better second round of six under par.


            The Junior competition meanwhile had a novel winner in Dutch native Martin Verbeek of Lough Owel as a second round of five under par gave him the title with that same score as he won a very tight battle for the title. Loughlinstown’s Thomas King finished second with a score of four under par as Charlie McHugh from Rochfortbridge finished in third place on three under par.
