GOLF | Hession sees off chasing pack to win Stableford at Dundalk Golf Club

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

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 18 points and further pars at the eighth and ninth saw him complete the front nine in one under par gross for a total of 22 points.

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 42 points.

Clem Walsh (5), Peter Rogers (1), Michael Hamilton (15) and Dermot McKenna (22) all scored 40 points and Hamilton and Walsh took the Category Two and Three prizes respectively.

Walshe took Category One from Rogers after the drawing of lots. Rogers had the consolation of posting the day’s best gross score of 39. Congratulations to Mark Coan who had a hole in one at the fifth on Sunday.
