Rowan doubles up with Shuttlecock Society win at Ballycastle

Thursday, 29 June 2017

EIGHTEEN handicapper John Rowan notched up his second outing win of the season by finishing two points clear of his nearest rivals in the Low Section at the Shuttlecock Golf Societys visit to Ballycastle Golf Club.
No fireworks on the front nine but pars at the par three third hole and the par four 8th hole made up for dings at the second and seventh holes. Strangely, despite the perfect weather conditions his sixteen point score at the turn was only bettered by ten handicapper Reggie Dallas who reached half way with eighteen points.
Johns back nine started well with a par at the short tenth hole only to falter with a ding at the par four eleventh hole. But with an excellent moral boosting par five at the at the twelfth hole he was back on track.
Two more pars came his way on the run in at the sixteenth and seventeenth holes and with just one bogey at the par four fifteenth hole Johns back nine score of nineteen points added up to a winning total of 35 points.
