Many congratulations to David Byrne who settled the first 2020 club matchplay competition this afternoon by beating Diarmaid Mcgabhann 3&2 to be crowned the Greystones Club Champion in our 125th year. David has come up through the junior ranks of Greystones Golf Club, first joining the academy at age 10. He was the no.1 player of the Fred Daly team in 2013, winning on the 20th hole to capture the Leinster pennant for the club and went on to play representative golf for UCD and Ireland. David had beaten Ray Crotty and Eddie Lonergan on the way to the final. Commiserations to Diarmaid who put up a good fight but it wasn’t to be his year. Diarmaid had to beat Adam Packman in the quarter final and Alan Condren in the semi final to get to the final.
