Schwabsky’s classic triumph

CONCORD golfer Margaret Schwabsky dominated the Mercedes Benz Duntryleague Classic from start to finish.

Schwabsky was consistently at the top, or close to the top, of the leaderboard throughout the three day event, played last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

The event was played as an individual stableford, with the highest aggregate score over the three days taking home the chocolates.

Schwabsky cracked 40 points in all three of her rounds, finishing with a final score of 122 (40, 40, 42) to take the title. She was just one stroke in front of Duntryleague native John Slade with 121 (45, 39, 37).

Another Duntryleague golfer, Ruth Swift, scored a top three finish, narrowly edging out Highland Golf Club’s John Rice for third position.

Swift overcame Rice via a countback, with both scoring 117 in the three day event, with respective break-ups of 36, 42, 39 and 38, 38, 41.

The Mercedes Benz Classic attracted over 150 golfers from far and wide, and concluded on Tuesday night with a gala dinner.

Duntryleague professional John Furze predicted how well the course was going to play, and how good of condition it was in ahead of the event, and yesterday believed his predictions were correct.

“There’s been so many good comments about the course, the service....just how much they enjoyed the tournament really,” he explained. “It was a big event over the three days. Everyone had a super time, everyone enjoyed it.”
