Pierce Purcell Shield
Our Pierce Purcell team, despite a gallant effort, had to concede to the superiority displayed by opponents Cahir Park on Saturday last. This was a home and away event and for a time, luck appeared to be on our side when Michael O’Halloran and partner Joey O’Dwyer won their match in Tipperary and Francis Fitzgerald together with Kevin Heuston did likewise in Cahir. Our side, however, failed to achieve further victory and the final result was 3/2 in favour of the opposition. It was an excellent display by our panel and any element of regret or disappointment should not be entertained after such a great performance. We extend sincere congratulations to the victors, Cahir Park Golf Club and wish them every success in the future. Thanks again to our Purcell panel, Michael O’Halloran, Barry O’Halloran, Francis Fitzgerald, Kevin Heuston, Seamus Ryan, Ger Ryan, Pat Fanning, Eamon Mulcahy, Shane Moloney and to team Manager Eddie Fitzgerald.

Jimmy Bruen
This was a supreme victory for Tipperary Golf Club and team manager Joseph B. Ryan when his carefully chosen panel emerged victorious after their first-round contest with Mitchelstown on Sunday last. This was a home and away event comprising three double parings at home and two pairings taking up the challenge in Mitchelstown. It turned into a suspense-filled, nail-biting duel when James O’Brien and partner Donnacha Cleary won their match in Tipperary and were followed a short time later by another team win by Richie Ryan and Niall O’Shea. The pressure then shifted to the shoulders of the remaining team-players in Mitchelstown and fortunately our anxious wait was rewarded within a short time when Tony O’Sullivan and partner Patrick Kennedy (Snr.) won their match in spectacular style. The final result was 3/2 in favour of Tipperary and they now look forward to their next contest with Dundrum. Congratulations and every good wish in the future to our panel, Tony O’Sullivan, Patrick Kennedy (Snr.), Ger Ryan, Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.), Pat Merrigan, James Doocey, Richie Ryan, Niall O’Shea, James O’Brien, Donnacha Cleary and team manager, Joseph B. Ryan.

Captain’s Prize   
The major event in the gents’ golf calendar takes place this weekend when Captain Morgan Mooney hosts his prize competition on Friday August 27, Saturday 28, and Sunday 29, 2020. The format will be 18 holes stroke with the leading 27 players to qualify for a nine hole “play-off” on Sunday evening.  Interestingly, the final will be played on the original 9-hole course which was in existence prior to the development of our present 18-hole course. 
This competition will command a very large entry, and all are requested to ensure that names are entered into the time-sheet promptly as the draw for playing partners takes place at 6.00 pm on Thursday, August 26, 2020.
We wish Captain Morgan every good luck on this great occasion and trust the weather will be favourable for all to enjoy the experience.
Jimmy Bruen  
Following on from their recent success against Mitchelstown, our Jimmy Bruen team now face the challenge of near neighbours Dundrum on Thursday August 26, 2020. The panel remains unchanged and consists of Tony O’ Sullivan, Patrick Kennedy (Snr.), Ger Ryan, Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.), Pat Merrigan, James Doocey, Richie Ryan, Niall O’Shea, James O’Brien and Donnacha Cleary.
This is a ‘home and away’ event and in compliance with recently-introduced Government health measures, supporting spectators are not allowed on the course. This is a very disappointing development for all intended supporters, but the entire panel and Team Manager Joe B. Ryan are wished the very best of luck and assured that although not physically present all supporters will be with them in spirit.
Storm Ellen    
The severe, unrelenting wind and torrential rain which announced storm Ellen’s arrival on Wednesday night rendered the Course unplayable on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Luckily no trees were uprooted but branches, and multitudes of debris littered most fairways requiring a massive clean-up. Greenkeeper Eddie and Kieran were extremely grateful for the invaluable assistance of several members who volunteered their services during this clean-up operation.
“News-Flash”  Members will be surprised to learn that a large-protruding branch from the middle tree on the second fairway was severed during Wednesday night’s storm. This same branch has caused lots of grief from time to time for many “big-hitters” trying to take-on the green from the tee, so we trust that they won’t be too upset with this news!!

Juniors 
As the membership of golf clubs comprise mostly of persons in the middle to senior age group category, it is heartening to see that this statistic is being dispelled by the recent influx of an exceptionally large number of new junior members to Tipperary Golf Club. To their credit, over the years, many club members took on the role of coaching, nurturing and imparting the basic rudiments of the game to young golfers. The late Bill O’Dwyer R.I.P. took on this task for many years and was replaced by Brian Devlin who recently passed the mantle to the equally-capable hands of Daniel Connory.  Lady Captain Josephine Rea,  Lady Vice Captain Anne English and Josie Finnan must also be applauded for the invaluable assistance given in the coaching of young golfers in the 5-9 age group. David Ruddy, professional golfer, provides lessons and coaching on the skills of the game to older juniors and we are very grateful for his services.
It is now a proud boast that amongst Tipperary Golf Club’s junior membership are many fledgling young golfing stars who are making their mark on the golfing circuit and are destined for greater things in the future, Donnacha Cleary (h/cap 5), Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.) (h/Cap 5), Niall O’Shea (h/cap 9), Rory O’Connor (h/cap 16), David O’Brien (h/cap 23) and Rory McCall (h/cap 30). These are closely followed by many other keen young golfers who have shown exceptional skill and latent talent.

Sad parting of a golfing legend – Mr. P.J. McMahon, R.I.P. 

To his golfing friends he was affectionately known as “Maxi” and apart from his academic prowess, Mr. Patrick J. McMahon, R.I.P was a true gentleman of golf, and for a lifetime so much part of Tipperary Golf Club. He played golf, he talked golf and true to his profession as a Teacher, he enjoyed imparting his vast knowledge of the intricacies and techniques of this ancient game. Whether it was “chipping out of the sand”, “chipping over the sand” or putting “back-spin” on the ball, Maxi had the answer. He would willingly and painstakingly provide the necessary tuition as to how the shot should be executed. Many have derived great benefit from those free clinics, while more of us should have listened more intently. 

One of his favourite pastimes, when not actually playing the game, was to repetitively practise the short “chip-shot” near the 16th green until perfection was attained. In 1961 Maxi was Captain of Tipperary Golf Club and his friendly, humorous, welcoming personality endeared him to all. Having recently celebrated his one hundredth birthday it was with immense sadness that we learned that Patrick. J. McMahon, R.I.P had passed away on August 10, 2020. He touched so many lives in a positive way and his memory will forever remain in the hearts of those of us who had the privilege of knowing him at Tipperary Golf Club. Ní fheicfimid a leithéidí ann arís agus go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam.

Jimmy Bruen
This was a supreme victory for Tipperary Golf Club and team manager Joseph B. Ryan when his carefully chosen panel emerged victorious after their first-round contest with Mitchelstown on Sunday last. This was a home and away event comprising three double parings at home and two pairings taking up the challenge in Mitchelstown. It turned into a suspense-filled, nail-biting duel when James O’Brien and partner Donnacha Cleary won their match in Tipperary and were followed a short time later by another team win by Richie Ryan and Niall O’Shea. The pressure then shifted to the shoulders of the remaining team-players in Mitchelstown and fortunately our anxious wait was rewarded within a short time when Tony O’Sullivan and partner Patrick Kennedy (Snr.) won their match in spectacular style. The final result was 3/2 in favour of Tipperary and they now look forward to their next contest with Dundrum. Congratulations and every good wish in the future to our panel, Tony O’Sullivan, Patrick Kennedy (Snr.), Ger Ryan, Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.), Pat Merrigan, James Doocey, Richie Ryan, Niall O’Shea, James O’Brien, Donnacha Cleary and team manager, Joseph B. Ryan. 
 
Lady Captain’s Prize
Our Lady Captain, Josephine Rea hosted her Prize Day on Sunday last. This was an exciting, glitzy, occasion which saw a capacity entry compete for the fabulous first prize on display. The event was blessed by an overcast sky and sunshine in equal measure, and the course was in superb condition. Anxious, excited anticipation prevailed throughout the day until Aoife Lowry was declared winner with an excellent score of 66 nett., playing off handicap 4. Congratulations to Aoife on her magnificent win and to Lady Captain Josephine.

Tipperary Golf Club Notes (W/Ending August 16, 2020)

18 Aug 2020

Sad parting of a golfing legend – Mr. P.J. McMahon, R.I.P.

To his golfing friends he was affectionately known as “Maxi” and apart from his academic prowess, Mr. Patrick J. McMahon, R.I.P was a true gentleman of golf, and for a lifetime so much part of Tipperary Golf Club. He played golf, he talked golf and true to his profession as a Teacher, he enjoyed imparting his vast knowledge of the intricacies and techniques of this ancient game. Whether it was “chipping out of the sand”, “chipping over the sand” or putting “back-spin” on the ball, Maxi had the answer. He would willingly and painstakingly provide the necessary tuition as to how the shot should be executed. Many have derived great benefit from those free clinics, while more of us should have listened more intently.

One of his favourite pastimes, when not actually playing the game, was to repetitively practise the short “chip-shot” near the 16th green until perfection was attained. In 1961 Maxi was Captain of Tipperary Golf Club and his friendly, humorous, welcoming personality endeared him to all. Having recently celebrated his one hundredth birthday it was with immense sadness that we learned that Patrick. J. McMahon, R.I.P had passed away on August 10, 2020. He touched so many lives in a positive way and his memory will forever remain in the hearts of those of us who had the privilege of knowing him at Tipperary Golf Club. Ní fheicfimid a leithéidí ann arís agus go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam.

Pierce Purcell Shield
Our Pierce Purcell team, despite a gallant effort, had to concede to the superiority displayed by opponents Cahir Park on Saturday last. This was a home and away event and for a time, luck appeared to be on our side when Michael O’Halloran and partner Joey O’Dwyer won their match in Tipperary and Francis Fitzgerald together with Kevin Heuston did likewise in Cahir. Our side, however, failed to achieve further victory and the final result was 3/2 in favour of the opposition. It was an excellent display by our panel and any element of regret or disappointment should not be entertained after such a great performance. We extend sincere congratulations to the victors, Cahir Park Golf Club and wish them every success in the future. Thanks again to our Purcell panel, Michael O’Halloran, Barry O’Halloran, Francis Fitzgerald, Kevin Heuston, Seamus Ryan, Ger Ryan, Pat Fanning, Eamon Mulcahy, Shane Moloney and to team Manager Eddie Fitzgerald.

Jimmy Bruen
This was a supreme victory for Tipperary Golf Club and team manager Joseph B. Ryan when his carefully chosen panel emerged victorious after their first-round contest with Mitchelstown on Sunday last. This was a home and away event comprising three double parings at home and two pairings taking up the challenge in Mitchelstown. It turned into a suspense-filled, nail-biting duel when James O’Brien and partner Donnacha Cleary won their match in Tipperary and were followed a short time later by another team win by Richie Ryan and Niall O’Shea. The pressure then shifted to the shoulders of the remaining team-players in Mitchelstown and fortunately our anxious wait was rewarded within a short time when Tony O’Sullivan and partner Patrick Kennedy (Snr.) won their match in spectacular style. The final result was 3/2 in favour of Tipperary and they now look forward to their next contest with Dundrum. Congratulations and every good wish in the future to our panel, Tony O’Sullivan, Patrick Kennedy (Snr.), Ger Ryan, Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.), Pat Merrigan, James Doocey, Richie Ryan, Niall O’Shea, James O’Brien, Donnacha Cleary and team manager, Joseph B. Ryan.

Lady Captain’s Prize
Our Lady Captain, Josephine Rea hosted her Prize Day on Sunday last. This was an exciting, glitzy, occasion which saw a capacity entry compete for the fabulous first prize on display. The event was blessed by an overcast sky and sunshine in equal measure, and the course was in superb condition. Anxious, excited anticipation prevailed throughout the day until Aoife Lowry was declared winner with an excellent score of 66 nett., playing off handicap 4. Congratulations to Aoife on her magnificent win and to Lady Captain Josephine.

Juniors
On Monday, August 17, 2020 Junior Captain, Patrick Kennedy (Jnr.) 14 years, (H/Cap 5) will host his Junior Captain’s Prize Competition. It is estimated that circa. 27 junior golfers will compete for this trophy. A matter worthy of note is that the Junior Captain himself, was a member of the successful Jimmy Bruen Panel on Sunday evening against Mitchelstown. Joining him on this winning Bruen Panel also was 13-year-old Donnacha Cleary (H/Cap 5). Donnacha competes in Cahir Park Golf Club on Thursday next August 20, 2020 in the boys under 14 all Ireland golf competition, and meantime he continues his winning ways as seen from the results hereunder.
