Great delight as popular member Timmy Ryan wins Clonmel Captain's Prize

Timmy Ryan accepts the Captain's Prize from Tony Horne at the presentation function in Clonmel Golf Club on Saturday night last. Timmy recorded a nett 63 shots for the 18 holes to win by three clear

The Captain’s Prize (Tony Horne) was played for at Clonmel Golf Club on Saturday last and resulted in a victory for long-time member Timmy Ryan who came home a clear winning by three shots when recording a nett 63, playing off 21.

Timmy held his nerve after putting himself in contention early on with some steady golf and over the closing holes held off the challenge of some perennial Captain’s Prize punters to capture the coveted prize.

It is a great boost also for the many senior players at the club to see Timmy win the No. 1 prize at the club for 2018, his biggest, and no doubt,most enjoyable win since his days of helping some great Clonmel Commercials teams to county senior football titles back in the 60s and early 70s.

Well done Timmy.
