CLUB NOTES 28/6/2015

Massive congratulations to the Westmeath Senior Footballers who pulled off a sensational and long overdue Leinster Championship victory over their old rivals Meath in Croke Park. For good measure the Westmeath Ladies senior team trounced the Meath Ladies to qualify for their Leinster Final, so well done to them also.

On the golfing front, thankfully the wind didn’t spoil the scoring for the Presidents Prize qualifier and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to more of the same next Sunday. The scoring that is, not the wind! Thanks to everyone who took part in our recent competitions and well done to all prize winners.

RESULTS –

Mr. Louis Cunningham / Mrs. Betty Behan Presidents Prize Qualifier (Strokeplay) 28/6/2015

Thursday Open (Stableford) 25/6/2015

1st Eoin Barton- Ballinasloe (7) 41pts, 2nd Gabriel Buckley (19) 40pts, Low Gross – Dom Fitzpatrick (5) 30pts, 3rd Sean Cooney (16) 39pts.

Dom Fitzpatrick, Lowest Gross in last weeks Thursday Open.

Seniors Open (Stableford) 23/6/2015

1st Jimmy Kassaris (11) 40pts, Seamus Dolan (9) 40pts.

NEXT COMPETITIONS – We start the week with a Seniors Open on Tuesday 30th, and then our Thursday Open is on 2nd July.  We continue to encourage people to book in advance for Thursdays to avoid any overcrowding at the first tee. With an entry fee of just €10 for visitors this is excellent value.

Next weekend there is an Open Stableford competition on Saturday 4th July and then on Sunday 5th July we have Mrs. Betty Behan & Mr. Louis Cunningham’s Presidents Prize Final. 24 women and 76 men have qualified and the draw will be available on the website at some stage on Monday. At this stage it looks like 79’s are in. All qualifiers should be signed in by 12.30 for a shotgun start at 1pm sharp.

The fortnightly 13 Hole Re-entry competition continues every Monday to Friday throughout the season. (You cannot enter this at weekends). 

8th GREEN – Great progress is being made with the new 8th green thanks to the efforts of our Captain Michael Kelly and his merry bunch of volunteers. For your chance to sponsor your very own square of the new green just see our website, click on the link http://www.moategolfclub.ie/eight.php and follow the instructions. The €50 Donations can also be made OFF-LINE in the Club Shop. All donations made so far are very much appreciated.

BRITISH OPEN FANTASY COMPETITION – We had a very positive response and a generally had a great time with this Fantasy Golf competition in 2014 so we are running it again this year. Once again €500 is on offer to the winner who can get the best combined score from their team of 6 golfers as selected from the world’s top 60 golfers. More details will follow shortly and committee members have been issued with their entry sheets so I’m sure they will be coming your way soon. The fee is €10 for 1 team and it’s just €20 for 3 teams which automatically trebles your chances. For anyone not in the immediate Moate area that would like to take part, contact me via email at andydunne11@hotmail.com and I’ll sort something out with you. Remember, if you’re not in you can’t win!

CAR PARKING – Unfortunately a number of members continue to ignore our requests, so I repeat that we would appreciate it if all members can refrain from parking in the area beyond the chain at the side of the clubhouse. This is causing major problems and you must use the plentiful car park spaces available at the front.

GOLFER OF THE YEAR 2015 – The leaders after 7 events (now including Vice Capt’s Prize) are Bert Burke 118pts, Kieran Heavin 115pts, and Brendan Kehoe on 112pts. The latest new entry on the table is Jason Higgins who scored 4pts in Martin Horan’s Vice Captains Prize. We have 6 players showing remarkable consistency in that they have scored in 5 of the 7 events - Joe Ennis, Adrian Hiney, Denis Cronin, Dom Fitzpatrick, Michael Power & Ray Lynam. While not in the top 3 currently they are still very much in contention.

GOTY 2015. Current leader, Bert Burke.  and in the chasing pack, Joe Ennis

GOLF RULES QUIZ – Last week’s answers ……..

Q1. A player purposely removes a boundary stake on his line of play, but he replaces it before making his next stroke. What is the ruling?

The player incurs a two-stroke penalty as they were in breach of Rule 13-2 as soon as the stake was removed. The replacement of the stake before his next stroke was irrelevant.

Q2. A player's provisional ball played from the tee strikes and moves his original ball; he is penalized one stroke for moving his original ball. True or False?

False. There is no penalty, but the original ball must be replaced (Rule 18-5).

And this week’s questions………..

Q1. A half-eaten pear lies directly in front of a ball in a bunker and there is no pear tree in the vicinity of the bunker. In the circumstances, is the pear an obstruction rather than a loose impediment, in which case the player could remove it without penalty?

Q2. The head of a player's club separated from the shaft during his backswing. The player completed the swing but missed the ball. Is the player deemed to have made a stroke?

Regards,

Andy Dunne
