Frank Flannery Is the 2019 captain's prize winner
Hugh Maher's Captain's Prize: Frank Flannery won Hugh Maher's Captain's Prize at a windy Nenagh golf course on Saturday with a score of 68 to follow his 67 in the qualifier last weekend for a total of 135. Michael J. Tierney was out early in the morning and his 64 set the target for the rest of the field. Eugene Fitzpatrick was in one the last few groups and his 69 put him in second place in the clubhouse. Frank Flannery was going very steady for his round and coming to the 18th he knew a six would secure the title. He took five at the hole to win Hugh's prize in very difficult playing conditions. He is a popular and worthy winner. At the presentation of prize in the clubhouse on Saturday night Hugh thanked everyone who help him during the year and specially over the last two weekends. He made a special presentation to Tom Doheny for his outstanding service over many year to the club and he referred to Tom as the friendly face of Nenagh
