The Category One prize went to Richard Fitzgerald (H: 12), after he signed for a score of 71 Nett. The highlight of Richard’s round was a very impressive birdie on the par 3 2nd hole to get his round off to a great start. The winner of Category Two was Matt Connellan (H: 18), with a score of 71 Nett. The Category Three prize was claimed by Darren Kelly (H: 22), after he returned a score of 72 Nett.
