Seven handicapper Paul Duffy won the President’s Prize of Tom Sturgeon at Enniskillen Golf on Saturday as the weather relented for the most part thereby allowing the golf to shine.

A birdie on the par five 18th sealed a narrow win for Duffy as he edged a trio of players on 41 points.

Indeed, Duffy came off the front nine three over having had a slight hiccup on the par four fifth which came after a great birdie on the stroke index one par four fourth. With an impressive 12 pars on the aforementioned birdie on the par 5 18th sealed the win.
