Hession wins Sunday's Stableford at Dundalk Golf Club

Dundalk Golf Club.

Shane Hession was the winner of Sunday’s Singles Stableford competition when he shot a fine score of 42pts to win by two points from a group of players on 40pts.

Hession, who plays off five, opened with six successive pars before a birdie four at the seventh earned him four points to bring his total to 18pts and further pars at the eighth and ninth saw him complete the front nine in one under par gross for a total of 22pts.

After a par at the 10th his first bogey on the day came on the par four, index two, 11th but a birdie at the next kept his gross score under par and he parred the remaining six holes to finish with a gross score of 71 and a points score of 42pts.

Clem Walsh (5), Peter Rogers (1), Michael Hamilton (15) and Demot McKenna (22) all scored 40pts and Hamilton and Walsh took the Category Two and Three prizes respectively while Walshe took Category One from Rogers after the drawing of lots. Rogers had the consolation of posting the day’s best gross score of 39pts.

Congratulations to Mark Coan who had a hole in one at the fifth on Sunday,
