Johnny McKinstrey bagged a new scoring record for the 14 holes course of the Winter League with a stunning round last week.

He carded a magnificent 43 points, 15 points more than the par for the course.

He was only four over par gross for his round and, in his own words, could do nothing wrong.

2nd- Bill McCandless 31 points.

Section 13-18:

Mr Consistency

Only four consistent players have scored 30 points or better in each of the first three rounds of the Winter League.

That makes them invaluable to their teams.

The Famous Four are:

Peter Hillen (Team One) 33, 34, 32.

Danny O‘Boyle (Team Two) 30, 35, 30.

Bill McCandless (Team Four) 31, 31, 30.

Alan McVey (Team Seven) 30, 30, 30.

It’s not an easy thing to do, score 30 or better each week. Alex Clarke was the only player to manage it last season.

Can Peter, Danny, Bill or Alan match that performance this year?
