Super's Strike Again

 As captain of the Dublin Mountain Super Seniors team I want to thank all members of the team who participated in the Elm Park Super Seniors Trophy group stage qualification matches.

The group matches were against Old Conna away (result draw 2.5 - 2.5) Dun Laoghaire home (Dublin Mountain 5 - DunLaoghaire 0) and yesterday's match at home to Newlands.
The result of yesterday's game meant that the winner of the match qualified for the quarter final play off matches to be played by the 10th September.
The results of yesterday's individual matches were: 
Team 1 Brian Campbell & Leo Mahon lost on the 18th hole. 
Team 2 John Hopkins & John Reid won 7 and 6. 
Team 3 Hugh Behan & Terry Kirwan won on the 18th hole. 
Team 4 Gerry Flood & Peter Behan won on the 18th hole. 
Team 5 Michael O'Sullivan & Michael O'Brien won 5 & 3. 
Overall result of match Dublin Mountain 4 - Newlands 1
There were also two other members of the team Eamonn Carroll and Tony Foran who did not play yesterday, but who played a major contribution to the results in the group matches against Old Conna and Dun Laoghaire.
Once again thanks to all who participated as we look forward to the quarter final play offs in September

& The winner is ...

 On a very pleasant (albeit grey) day at the course, a burst of colour stood out for the singles Match Play final.

After a nip & tuck battle Kevin Behan edged out Ray Dunne by 1 hole, if this was the seniors tour Kevin Behan would have won €950K and Ray €500K but because Ray also finished 2nd in the Doubles Final he would hypothetically by a paper millionaire.

Many thanks to all those who participated and to Ger Cantwell  for his patience in organising it all.

Brian Cruise, Captain 2021 (Mike pence has stepped in for Damian Byrne who due to work commitments has reluctantly switched roles to Vice Captain).
