Former course manager John J.M. O’Dwyer showed his in-depth knowledge of the course on Tuesday scoring 38pts to take the honors with a couple to spare. Not to be outshone by his lovely golfing wife Úna, our own Seán Bohan qualifies for the GUI 9-Hole Southern Region Final with 17pts, to be played on Monday, June 11th @ TGC. James O’Brien is back in form, winning the Saturday Singles with 35 pts, Liam Guilfoyle was edged out yet again on a countback on the final 9. Liam is Mr. Speedy personified and he can teach us all a thing or two, less than 2:40 for 18 holes is very impressive. A good turnout for our Club Singles on Sunday saw the big-hitting Jon Murray take the spoils with 38 pts, followed closely by Tom Carmody on 37 pts & Patrick Ryan G on 36pts. Be prepared, we are coming towards the end of the period for preferred lies and the course is getting better, firmer and faster. Play as it lies is just around the corner, we might even sneak in a stroke play competition quite soon.
Jimmy Bruen: Our team put in a sterling performance to beat Mitchelstown 3-2 in the opening round. Playing against the home side in the afternoon was a big ask. Even with fresh legs going out in the afternoon Drundrum went through to the final match with a 3.5-1.5 victory. My shot of the day goes to Big Jim Furyk-McGlynn. He lipped out for eagle on the 8th, giving everyone a huge thrill but sadly leaving the ball sulking by the hole. Tony O’Sullivan’s approach to within 18 inches on the same hole was a superb shot but pales in comparison. A good showing by all involved, well done.
Pierce Purcell: Next practice on Monday evening from 5:45pm.
Moloney Foursomes: Have you entered your name for the draw? You might still get into the hat if you call us and let us know you want to play.
