SATURDAY was the Les Jones Memorial Qualifying competition and took the form of a stableford pairs event.

Both players teed off and then the best drive was selected and play continued from there. The top 16 pairs qualified and then go through to the matchplay stage of the event.

They were first Shane O’Hanlon and Paddy O’Hagan with 44 points. Shane and Paddy shot some fantastic golf to win by three clear shots in this quite difficult format that doesn’t really let players get into the swing of their game.

Sometimes you don’t get a putt for a few holes or get to play a shot into a green because you have the best drive.

Second spot went to Sean Magill and Jonathan McGahey with 41 points. In third was Kenny Gracey and Daniel Downey with 41 points.

Other results:

Fourth: Alan Patterson and Harold Spence with 40 points.

Fifth: Lyle Hamilton and David Allen with 40 points.

Sixth: Glen McMillen and Bill White with 39 points.

Seventh: David Erwin and Lee McClintock with 38 points.

Eigth Sam Quigley and Kenny Logan with 37 points.

Ninth: Colin Whan and Jackie Gilliland with 37 points.

Tenth: Paul Magill and Phillip Tinsley with 37 points.

Eleventh: Alistair Simpson and Aurthur Wenlock with 37 points.
