The very competitive and successful 2018 Pat Kirk Ltd Winter League came to a conclusion at Foyle on Saturday last when the Qualifying Teams turned out for the Final and what a final it turned out to be with four points separating the leading four teams in the better-ball event after some fantastic scores were returned as the Teams competed for the coveted title.
Jason Murray & Terry Cavanagh got their round off to a great start when compiling 25 points on the outward nine, with Michael Coyle & Gary Mc Elroy keeping pace finishing the front nine two points adrift on 23 points, Jason & Terry added a further 23 points on the way home for an excellent 48 points to win the coveted title, as Michael & Gary continued to push with a further 24 points for another excellent score of 47 points but finished a point in arrears as very worthy Runners – up.
