Letterkenny's Eamonn McGlinchey won Brian Wallace's Captain's Prize in the final Northwesterm Golfing Alliance outing of the season at Dunfanaghy.

Playing off six, he went around in just three over par 71, notching 20 points on each nine. 

In the nett section, 20 points was the average score for the first nine by the front runners and Kevin Hunter must have thought that he was only there to make up the numbers when he had recorded only 14 points for the first eight holes.

However, his putter warmed up after a birdie at the par-three ninth and he proceeded to return a level par gross for the next 10 holes, racking up 22 points on back nine to win with 39 points on a count back from George McCay and Kieran O’Neil.

In the gross section, the scoring was excellent although only the sixth prize went to countback Golfer of the Year Finnian O’Doherty was third with a level par 68 with Marty McDermott (67) second and Mick McGeady the clear winner thanks to a four under 64.

He reeled off five 3's in a row from the first, and 10 in all, with his only mistake a bogey at the sixth.
