The Ulster Final of the Jimmy Bruen was held at Edenmore Golf Club on Sunday 18th August with the course being presented in immaculate condition.

Amid sunny skies and a stiff breeze, the players were presented with quite a challenge but despite this, the golf was of a high standard with both sets of supporters applauding good golf. By the middle of the back nine, Tandragee had got themselves into a strong position and their number one pair of Dean Acheson and Johnny Quinn closed the match out with a winning point on the final green against the Balmoral pair of Donagh Finnegan and John Toner.

After the presentation of winner's pennant and runner's up shield, team and club captain's paid handsome tributes to their respective teams.  In a final and very sporting moment, the Club Captain of Balmoral, Donagh Finnegan who had played in the match, called for three cheers for the Tandragee team as they head for the All Ireland finals at Westport.
