Rory Leonard from the Banbridge club won the Ulster Mid Amateur Open Championship, which was played at Lurgan Golf Club over 54 holes last Sunday and Monday.
Rory had rounds of 70, 72 and 73 for a total of 215 and he beat his club mate, Jim Carvill, by two shots. Jim had rounds of 72, 74 and 73, a total of 217.
Simon Miskelly (Knock) was in third place, also with 217 points.
This was a major success for Rory who played really well in difficult conditions.
- There are still a few spaces remaining in the Hope 4 Eva Golf Classic at Banbridge Golf Club this coming Friday. This is a very worthy cause with all the money raised going towards the medical needs of a beautiful young girl. It is a four-person team event with loads of prizes. There will also be spot prizes and a raffle with a helicopter ride as top prize. But, most of all, if you participate, you will be making a small contribution towards a very deserving cause.
