‘Team South’ Wins United Cup at Carton House

‘Team South’ captained by Jimmy Lennox comfortably beat ‘Team North’ captained by Jonathan Adair to win the coveted United Cup at Carton House, with a decisive score of 7.5 to 1.5, on a marvellous day for golf – with somewhat different weather from last year’s! Both captain’s announced their successors for 2013.

Yvonne Lennox, United’s Sales Manager Ireland, said: “We have been absolutely blessed with the weather today – after the sheets of rain last year! Thanking Team North for coming down, she added: “Maybe we will go North next year!”

Jonathan Adair said of Carton House: “You can bring us down here any time you like!”. Succinctly admitting that “We got stuffed”, he said that he had been delighted to represent the team as Captain for the past two years and announced that Jimmy Murphy would be taking over the role next year. Team South will be captained next year by John Cassidy.
