Congratulations to Naas Girls Tara Cuneely, Emma Culhane, Orla Hennessey and Kate Foley who won the Leinster Girls skills competition in Carton House last week and go on now to represent Leinster at the finals to be held in Portstewart at this years Irish Open. What a fantastic result and a great boost for the girls section who are growing in strength every year. Good luck to all in the final!
Best of luck this week to Conor O'Rourke and Jonathan Yates who were both selected to play for Leinster next week but Conor is unable due to Irish Team commitments. Both are playing in Walton Heath this week in the European Individuals and we wish them well.
Don't forget every Wednesday we have a long game clinic from 7pm-8pm for anyone who wants to brush up on some basics. The class is held at the range and is on a first come first served so no sign up. The price is €15 p/p including a small basket of balls. This class will run throughout July.
Well done to our Assistant Brian Sweeney who narrowly lost out on a place at the second stage of Open Qualifying this week finishing just outside the top four places and is on the reserve list and awaiting a possible call up. Great playing from Brian at the Island this week who says he putted great.....are we surprised...?
Don't forget we have just taken stock of the new FootJoy and PING summer clothing range, some of the new range looks really good and all items are club crested.
It most likely went under the radar for many of you but last weekend saw the Amateur Championship take place at both Royal St George's and Princes. Not only does the winner join a stellar list of past champions including Sergio Garcia, Jose Maria Olazabal and more recently Matteo Manassero, but they also secure a place at that year's Open Championship as well as the following year's US Open and Masters Tournament.
After 18 holes stroke play at both Royal St George's and Princes, 288 of the world's best amateurs were whittled down to just 64, going on to compete in match play golf at Royal St George's until only one remained.
The 36-hole final was fiercely competitive with no golfer able to build more than a one-hole lead over the opening 18 holes. The second 18 was a different story, with Australian Dylan Perry winning four holes in a five-hole stretch to find himself 4up with just nine holes remaining. With one hand on the trophy, Perry's grip started to slip as he lost four of the final five holes to finish the match A/S, eventually going on to lose at the 38th hole to Englishman Harry Ellis - an outcome which seemed highly unlikely a couple of hours prior.
