June Whyte sees the Light! On Sunday last our esteemed President Pat Murphy presented a beautiful lamp to the Ladies Club. Competition was keen, but in the end it was June Whyte who played the best golf. Playing off 19 June returned a score of 72 nett. This is June’s second major this year as, only a few weeks ago, she won the Captain’s Prize to the Ladies! It was nice to see Nora Flynn back on the podium. Playing off 28 Nora had a very good 73 nett. Deirdre Ruane is playing super golf at the moment and is in the prizes every week. Playing off 14 Deirdre had a 92 to win the gross.
In third place we had yet another in form player, Denise Nugent playing off 23 with a 76 Nett. Jo Swayne won Cat A playing off 17 with a 79 nett. Jo never plays a bad game. Marian Hilliard made a welcome return to the prize winners when she won Cat B with an 83 nett while the ever consistent Mary Herlihy playing off 31 took Cat C with 78 nett. On behalf of our Lady Captain I would like to sincerely thank Pat Murphy, who is such a stalwart of West Waterford for putting up this lovely prize.
