Timmy Jordan may not have won the EMS Semi-open but there was a very satisfying consolation prize for the celebrated Dungannon golfer - a new course record 65.

That is remarkable shooting by the young Eglish man, the best since the six new greens were installed back in 2009!

Captain’s week in the Dungannon Golf Club had started last Monday with the annual Shotgun Foursomes, won with a net 68 were Barry Devlin and Olen Watt

Runners-up with 70.5 were Damien McCann and Peter Hughes and in third place, with a net 71 via a better back nine, were Ryan Starkey and David Fanthorpe.

On Wednesday, a very commendable 110 members turned up to take part in the annual semi-open kindly sponsored by Harry McCourt.

The weather was surprisingly pleasant - defying the forecasters for a nice change, Pat O’Hanlon was the winner in a tight finish with a splendid 44 points.

And the Coalisland contractor needed every one of those points, leaving him just ahead of Jordan on countback, that excellent seven under par round setting new figures for the course.

Gerry Colton was just a solitary point further back in third place, with the section prizes going to players who also broke the forty points mark.

David Fanthorpe, Daniel Madden and Stephen Lee finished top of their groups.

With Jordan’s heroics assuring him of the runner-up prize, Jack Madden won the gross prize on countback with his fine level par 72,

Timmy Jordan bagged the long drive award and Pearse Kelly rerrwarded a fine nearest the pin effort.
