Despite the weather providing some crisp sunshine just 10 players left the Christmas celebrations for a while to play in the Boxing Day Shop Sweep.
The winner was Gerard McCarron with 34pts off 16 to continue a remarkably successful run over the winter months. Olcan Kearney’s birdie at the last meant a round of 2 over par and 29pts, off 3, to take second place.
That birdie was important for Olcan as it enabled him to hold off the challenge of a rampant Canice McGivern who also had 29pts, off 8, to take 3rd place. This was Canice’s second podium finish in 3 days and it looks like the 2018 season can’t come soon enough for him at the moment.
