Michael Van Dessel Wins the W. P. McCarter Memorial Cup
The mid-week competition this week was the long running WP McCarter Memorial Cup sponsored by the McCarter Family. With a good crowd turning out for this popular annual competition, combined with the inclement weather conditions and lush rough, it was going to take a good round of golf to take the honours and Michael Van Dessel (11) was the man to provide such a round.
Hitting form again over these past few weeks, it was only a matter of time before Michael was in the winner’s enclosure. Michael started off brightly and with a +2 (35) Gross front 9 holes for 22 points, he was off to a flyer and played a nice steady back 9 for a further 20 points for his winning total of 42points.
Michael now becomes the 56th winner of the WP McCarter Memorial Cup, which was first played for way back in 1946.
One point behind Michael was Ciaran Mc Ateer (13) and Fiachra O’Flaherty (5) who both tied with 41 points, Ciaran pipping Fiachra to second place thanks to his superior back 9 holes.
