The penultimate outing of the season was played in the sunshine at Dungannon, the players who top the player of the year (POTY) were keen to return a good score to stay in contention.

In 4th place was Dermuid Mitchell but alas not enough to keep him in POTY . 3rd place went to Micky McMahon with 34pts this places micky in joint second place in POTY with Ian Mulholland who captured 2nd place with 34pts. In first place and leading POTY was Conor McConville with 39pts, Conor played a steady round of golf on sunday and must be favourite for POTY as pressure does not seem to affect him. Not so Ian and Micky who have a reputation of cracking on the final day Denny one of veteran members has a reputation of getting lost and having no sense of direction.

On our next outing to Armagh Golf Club on Sunday 16th September he won’t be doing the driving
