It is always great to see a new major winner. This year our Green Jacket goes to Donnie Sheehy who shot a solid 58.3 in Tipperary. His playing partner, Speith, ripped up Augusta to catapult the team up through the field. It was pointed out to me this morning that our own champion and a certain Mr. Reed have a very similar build, well done Donnie I’m sure that the jacket will sit very well on your shoulders. The early leaders in Tipperary, Fuller & Madden, were pushed back into the runner-up spots as their professionals could not match up to the quality of their golf.
