Captain Cyril Joyce and sponsor Paddy Aspell, Clifden Supply Centre, with the joint winning Pro Simon Thornton, who shared the win with Damian McGrane in the club’s recent ProAm. Both players finished on -5 which was a fantastic score in tough conditions. Both players played entirely different courses on both days with Thornton getting the slightly better draw on Saturday morning before McGrane played in the afternoon. McGrane had much better conditions on Sunday morning with heavy mist/drizzle and little or no wind. It is a credit to both players for their management of the course over a tough weekend.
