Rosapenna roll on into Jimmy Bruen Ulster Semi Finals
Rosapenna’s Jimmy Bruen team led by John Casey & Sean Boyce overcame Tandragee Golf Club the
2010 Ulster winners and 2011 Ulster finalists in a tightly contested match in Newtownstewart Golf Club last Friday night.
The race to 3 points was made easier when Peadar Boyce & Kieran Logue secured an early 3&2 victory,
they were followed by Johnny Sweeney & Shane Sweeney winning by a 3&1 margin to give Rosapenna a 2-1 lead.
In a mainly youthful team, it was experience that shone through in the end as Shaun Boyce holed a 30 foot putt
across the 18th green to keep him & partner Marty Carlin in the match halving the last to remain all square.
It was Marty’s turn for glory on the 19th however as he produced an excellent wedge shot from 80 yards to
within just six inches to set up a match winning birdie three.
The last pairing of Pete McBride Jnr & Brendan Roache were all square on the 17th tee when called in.
