CHRIS SHOOTS NEW COURSE RECORD

CHRIS WATTS

Chris breaks course record to win Hugh Wilson Shield

It was a record breaking weekend at Silverwood golf club on Saturday 19/7/14 with Chris Watts  breaking the course record at the club by two shots with an unbelievable gross 64. Chris had a fantastic front nine of 28 shots which equalled 25 point’s with two eagles at the 1st and par four 4th hole, three birdies at the 7th 8th and 9th holes and four pars at the 2nd 3rd 5th and 6th holes, and at this stage a 59  was a real possibility, but a couple of three putts on the 11th and 17th holes but paid to that target. He did however have three birdies at the 13th 15th and 18th holes and four pars at the 10th 12th 14th and 16th holes for a one under back nine, and 20 points, and a great total of 64 gross and 45 points to win by one point.

MUSA

musa 2014

The seniors played their latest league game this week at Edenmore and finished a very creditable fourth from the ten competing clubs . This moves them up towards the centre of the league and with their hosting yet to take place,there is a realistic chance of finishing in the top 3. Best for the local club on the day where the pairing of Seamus Patton and Neil Walker with 40pts, whilst Dermot  Mc Cabe and David Mills had an excellent 37 after a very shakey start. Altogether a very pleasing and encouraging performance.

Junior Match

 MONDAY   26/05/14    SILVERWOOD 4.5      MOURNE  3.5 

 In a very tight match that started in very poor conditions and finished with a very tense and exciting shootout on the last hole. Silverwood started the day at 3-1 up from the first leg. Alan Steel & Jim Haddock and Daryl Patton & Chris Lamont jr were soundly beaten,Albert Porter &Kieran Devlin were 1 down going up the 18th where Kieran Devlin sunk a mighty putt to win the hole and half the match. Gerrard Totten & Enda Brady came into the last hole all square, Gerrard had a tricky eight foot putt to win the hole but missed the cup by about a centimeter and his next putt was given.This left Mourne with a 2 foot putt to half the match and go throught to the next round, but unluckly for them they also failed to find the bottom of the cup. After all the grey cloud of the day Silverwood seem the silver lining.
