Cormac McAdam from Lisnaskea and a member of Clones Golf Club recently competed in the EDGA (European Disabled Golf Association) wheelchair users golf tournament in Club de Golf Terramar, Sitges in Spain. After a tough opening day with adverse weather conditions Cormac was lying in a very credible 3rd place with a score of 34pts. Unfortunately day 2 was abandoned due to the course being flooded but as a result Cormac retained his 3rd position, only a few points behind the winner, in a field of golfers from all over Europe.
He played very well despite the very poor weather on the day of the competition and was in strong contention throughout Everyone at Clones Golf Club would like to congratulate Cormac on his brilliant achievement. Cormac was presented with his trophy by the Competition Co-Ordinator Sebastian Lorente.
