Congratulations to David Osborne who won the mens PGA Tankard last weekend and joins Sarah Crowe and myself at the PGA Tankard qualifiers in September.
Thank you to everyone that played and supported the event and it was great to see such a busy time sheet.
Wow how time flies, Open week is just around the corner now and hopefully the weather has settled and the sun will come out for us finally this summer. Don't forget that time sheets go live next Thursday, 14 July!
What a busy week it was for the club again with Anne McCormack representing Connaught at the Inter-provincials in Slieve Russell, Jonathan Yates was a key player in Leinster winning the mens Inter-provincials at Fota Island and it was a particularly proud day on Thursday for both coach and club when Conor O'Rourke and Jack Hume paired up to represent Ireland in foursomes against Italy at the European Championships.
As if that was not enough Cian Nowlan Rooney was 3rd in the Leinster under 13 Boys Championships, Eoin Freeman was 6th in the under 14 boys Championships and David Marshall was 4th in the under 16 Leinster Boys Champioships all in their first provincial outings so well done to all!!
Date for your Diary
On Saturday, 20 August myself and Brian are running a short game Camp.....open to everyone. We will take you through all aspects of chipping, pitching and bunker play, treat you to some lunch and then Brian will show you how to hole more putts and feel more confident on the greens!
Spaces are limited.
More details will follow but if you would like to attend please contact either myself or Brian or click here.
Is it the 'Big Three' or the 'Big Four'?
Just when you thought Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy were all set to divvy up golf's biggest prizes, along comes big-hitting Dustin Johnson. The US champion is now number two in the world and looks to be finally fulfilling his potential after another fine win at the weekend - and a big one too at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. For years Johnson seemed destined to be the bridesmaid, now he's one of the favourites to go back-to-back in Majors and take the Claret Jug back across the Atlantic.
Next week's Open at Royal Troon could be a classic
Which leads us on to a new section of our website - our regular poll, and we want your votes. Tell us who you think will win the Open Championship next week; will it be Day, Johnson, Spieth, McIlroy or A.N. Other?
