Despite some inclement weather at the beginning, 32 men and women gave it a crack and the weather fined up to make it worthwhile. The format was challenging and there were a lot of ‘gunshots' (like in The Hunger Games) heard right across the course as a partner was repeatedly ‘shot' by the other partner's ringer. It lead to some pretty grim scoring.
In the end Barbara Jepson and Michael Connor, despite a wretched front nine, sparked into life on the second nine to overrun clubhouse leaders Chase McKeown/Justine O'Connell and also Glen Ogilvie/Sinead Kearny and Andrew Davison/Kevin O'Connor. Overall a fun day was had and it is planned to hold this completion again after the next coring.
Skins results, Chase McKeown and Justine O'Connell got a 6 hole jackpot (with 8 points on 8th hole) and a strong back nine from Barbara Jepson got her pairing a 7 hole jackpot. Brian Treacy got 2 holes and John Dagg, Kevin O'Connor and Sinead Kearney (with a mammoth 2 points on the 10th) each got one skin.
