Round 1 Isle of Man Close Championships sponsored by Grant  Thornton

An overcast and misty morning greeted the early starters in the first round of qualifiers in the Isle of Man Close Championships at Rowany Golf Club. 85 men had signed up for the competition with 14 ladies teeing off after the men from mid-day. After 9 holes Daryl Callister posted as score of 33 which was leading the pack.

Unfortunately, for the players, the mist kept on rolling in and with no wind or sun to move it on it consumed the course. The competition was stopped at 09.00am on safety grounds as players could not see where their drives were landing. After 2 hours and several course inspections and calls to the ‘Met office’ play resumed at 11.15am

Daryl maintained his form for the back 9 finishing with a gross 68 with local player Paul Lowey matching his score followed closely

by Mark Sutton and last year’s losing finalist Jonathon Corke on 69


.

Daryl Callister shoots a gross 68 in round 1

Paul Lowey 68 gross in Round 1


Catherine Cassidy leading after Round 1 with a score of 79

With a two hour delay, the Ladies teed off at 2.00pm in glorious sunshine and a light breeze which remained for the rest of the day. After 9 holes Catherine Cassidy of Castletown scored a 36 leading

over last year’s champion Breeshey Jansen, Shirley Price and Lindsay Tickell who were all on 41.


At the end of the round, Catherine was still in the lead with a gross score of 79 with Shirley on 81 and Breeshey on 82.

The second round of the ‘qualifiers’ gets under way on Sunday 15th July at 07.00.






Round 2 Isle of Man Close Championships sponsored by Grant  Thornton

On day 2 of the Isle of Man Close Championships the weather was quite similar to that of Day 1 and the orgnaisers at Rowany were keeping their fingers crossed that the fog would keep away. With rain forecast later in the day it was hoped that the competition would be over before it arrived.

The start sheet was flipped from halfway to give yesterdays early starters a mid-morning  tee time. First on the tee at 07.00 was Stuart Wallace who went on to match his previous day’s score of 82 giving him a total of 164. However, it was yesterdays leaders who maintained their position at the front of the pack with both Paul Lowey and Daryl Callister shooting 71. After checking the cards on ‘countback’ Paul holds the position of leading Qualifier. Best gross for Round 1 was Daryl Callister and for Round 2, MarkPugh.

After 36 holes the top 16 was:

1st Paul Lowey 139. 2nd Daryl Callister 139. 3rd Mark Sutton 140. 4th Jamie Arneil 142. 5th Jack Gilbert 142. 6th Liam Cowin 143. 7th Kevin Moore 144. 8th Jonathon Corke 144. 9th Mark Pugh 145. 10th Stephen Skillicorn 145. 11th Lee Morgan 146. 12th Peter Glover 147. 13th Keith Ward 148. 14th Joe Raeside 148. 15th Chad Wilby 149. 16th Richard Skillicorn 149.

The Ladies second round got under way at 12.00pm with Shirley Price and Breeshey Jansen who were lying in 2nd and 3rd place after Round 1. Hot on their heels was yesterdays leader Catherine Cassidy. In the end, the deciding factor on each of the first three positions was one bad hole on each of their cards. Shirley a 7 on the 3rd. Catherine an 8 on the 7th and Breeshey a 9 on the 13th.
