Rossmore Cup Team Reach Final

Rockmount have reached the final of the Rossmore Cup following victory against Ashfield Golf Club in the semi-final.

Having secured a 3.5 – 0.5 (10 holes) lead at home, the team travelled to picturesque Crossmaglen confident but not complacent.

Team Captain “Gazza” had jetted off to Portugal leaving his VC with the responsibility/pressure of securing the victory.

First out were Neill McKibbin and the “youngster” Frank Wallace. A tight match which was never more than 1 hole up or down until the 18th, finished with a 2&1 defeat.

Next up were Ken Duke and the under pressure VC (Colin Childs). Aided by Dukey’s trusty putter and Colin’s surgeon-like short game the Rockmount pair eased to a 2&1 win and gained the point required.

Third match was Paul and Andy Mearns playing arguably Ashfield’s strongest pair. A stunning Rockmount fightback from 5 down (according to the Ashfield Captain) to finish all square ensured that Andy and Paul were still on speaking terms at the end.

Last out were Russell Jamison and Eddie Davidson. This match was full of high quality golf, especially from Russell (so he told me twice afterwards). A generous Rockmount concession on the 18th resulted in a halved match.

So, much to the delight of Captain Gorman (live by satellite from the pool) Rockmount move on to the final were they play Rossmore Golf Club. Well done to all.
