Results Valley Commercials Stroke Competition

Paul Colgan was very unlucky with a marvelous 76 gross. Playing off 14 brought him back to 62 nett also, and had a better back nine than Charlie, but Brendan McCusker arrived with 62 nett, and again, a better back nine than Charlie & Paul.


1st – Brendan McCusker, 62 nett

2nd – Paul Colgan, 62 nett

3rd – Charlie Keys, 62 nett
