47 teams took part in the Irish 3-ball Texas Scramble in damp, early season conditions, played on the Brownlow course. Early conditions were quite wet, however the weather improved as the day progressed, and the fact that course was playable at all, reflected the efforts of the Belton Park ground-staff.
The winners were Jack Diment, Will Hopkins & Aaron Kay. They shot a 14 under par gross score of 57, which when added to their combined handicap of +0.2, saw them home with a fantastic winning total of 57.2.
In 2nd place were Andrew Connor, Steve Mitchell & Olly Mitchell with 58.5, 3rd were Lee Towsey, Andrew Clark & Dave Wing with 59.4.
