ON SUNDAY, August 9, Letterkenny Golf Club played Portstewart in the second round of Senior Cup.
There were two matches in Barnhill and three in Portstewart, with Cian Harkin leading the way with a fabulous 8 and 7 victory in Barnhill.
And onto the drama in Portstewart. In the first match Simon Stephens had an epic match going all the way to the 18th were a winning par was enough to win the match two-up.
In the secpnd match Ryan Griffin was four down after eight, holes but battled back magnificently on the back nine to take the match down the 19th.
A six-foot putt for par was enough to send Letterkenny through to the last 16 where they will play Rathmore for a place in the Ulster quarter final.
Congratulations to Martin Kelly who had a hole in one at the 16th on the 3rd August.
