The weather was just lovely with very slight breeze and it stayed dry all day .The course was in excellent condition and the greens as usual fast and true. In the Gross section Michael McGeady was going for 4 wins in a row had one of those days we all like to forget. The winner Keelan Quigg, who has not been on top of the podium this season in the Gross section until now produced a superlative round .The other winners this year have all been professionals in the shape of J.P.Dolan the pro at Ballybofey /Stranorlar and Brian McElhinney one of the pros at Foyle Golf Academy apart from Enda Kennedy who had won in Ballyliffin.After the first nine Keelan was the one at the top of the leader board at level par. He had birdied the 1st dropped a stroke at the next went level for the next 4 holes birdied the par 3 7th parred the next and dropped a stroke at the 9 th .He then parred the 5 holes following, birdied the index 1 15th parred the 16TH a par 3, birdied the 17th par 5 and then closed his round with a bogey on the par 4 18TH He was one under and mighty pleased with himself as well he might be.Brian McElhinney was one behind him after 9 as was Cathal Patton, Brian was playing par golf bar dropped shots on 9 and 10 all the other holes he played I regulation figures. Cathal had a bit of a stumble on 13 and 14 when he dropped 3 strokes but he rallied well to go top of the Nett Winners prize listBrian was runner up in the Gross section on 2 over.The runner up in the nett section was Seamus Herraghty He had local knowledge in abundance. ,he is a member of Rosapenna Golf club and was playing with the Green Keeper and how he tried to make these advantages pay off .He had a blank on the 5th but still had 19 points on the front nine to Cathal Patton’s 20 points ..After the 10th he was level with the winner and they matched each other until the 18th where Cathal got 3 points to Seamus’s 2 points and that was the difference between winning and losing.In the Golfer of the Year Brian McElhinney secured the gross prize .He was steadiness personified throughout the Season and with one counting event to go he is in an unassailable position.In the Nett the title of Alliance Champion has not been decided yet. It has been an interesting contest over the last few months as three members of the same family battle it out for the title. This week Maurice McGettigan is now just 1 point behind his brother Odran as he was the only one to secure a placing in the top ten this week. As a consequence he leap frogged his nephew to be in second place just behind his brother. His nephew is just 5 adrift of him .Odran who is the Alliance Champion from last year is on 27 Maurice on 26 and Connor on 21 and the title is in their hands as no one else can catch them. The last counting day is on Dunfanaghy. It promises be a real family shoot out.Next competition Dunfanaghy Golf Club on 2nd March 2013GOLF: NORTH WEST GOLFING ALLIANCE NEWS AND RESULTS was last modified: February 16th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:GOLF: NORTH WEST GOLFING ALLIANCE NEWS AND RESULTSROSAPENNAlast_img
