Cameron claims McCaughey Cup
PORTSTEWART'S John Cameron slumped to a double bogey six at the third hole on Saturday but still returned a strong 21 points on the front nine.
This included four points for his birdie 3 at the ninth. Another slump at the par three 12th did not deter John as he again birdied the last hole of the nine to total 40 points and get his name on the McCaughey Cup.
Countback came into play to push Robert Murphy into runner-up spot. Robert scored well out with two four pointers, (5 and 9) resulting in 23 for the front. Robert could not better the course coming in, 17 points scored, but did enough to keep second place.
David Ilsley won another high section with his return. Playing off 15 David birdied the par five seventh for 20 out and one dropped point back gave him his 39. The low section was taken by seven handicap Fergal Stewart, also with 39 points. Fergal had no blanks, a birdie at the thirteenth, and plenty of pars on his card.
With a great score of three under par, Stephen Garrett won another gross prize. He was four under for the front with birdies at 2, 5 7 and nine but returned with dropped shots at 11, 15 and 17 for 39 stableford points.
