Over the past few months of coaching from Tommy Henderson, sticking to a strict diet supervised by Paula and the taste of beer a distant memory, Marcel (musculus) Murray has landed his first major.
On a sunny Friday afternoon last week musculus matched the weather by blazing a trail round Lurgan golf club to capture first place with 39 points his points tally could have been higher but for the 5 dings on his card. With 2 outings left in the season musculus is now hot favourite for player of the year.
A very disappointed Cconor McConville had to settle for 2nd place he also returned 39 points with only 1 ding on his card, featuring in the Lurgan Mail this week has gone some way to make up for his disappointment on Friday.
Bill Hughes on his second outing this year was 3rd with 38 pts; 4th was Eugene McAtamney with 37pts. His Rory McIlroy melt- down on the back 9 didn’t help his cause.
5th Michael McMahon, 35pts, boring as usual. 6th Greg Hogan 35pts ditto.
Front 9 – E McAtamney – 24pts
Back 9 – M McMahon
