Gary Hurley finishes tied 4th at Portugal Open.
Congratulations to Gary Hurley who recorded a magnificent result in the prestigious Open de Portugal played at Morgado Golf Resort at the weekend. Rounds of 70, 69, 74 and 71 saw the Aglish man finish on 4 under par for the four rounds, and just 3 shots behind the winner. Gary has been building up to a top level performance during the winter months and hopefully this is just the beginning of his rise to the top in the European Challenge Tour.
Jimmy Bruen Shield
Wins over Faithlegg and host club Youghal on Saturday, saw Stephen Spillane’s Bruen team through to a showdown with near neighbours Gold Coast in the area final on Sunday afternoon. With West Waterford going for three in a row, our players were determined to put in the extra effort knowing that local derbies always bring out the best on both sides. As usual this was a tight affair through 9 holes with neither side giving an inch. We got the much needed boost when our first pair brought in a win on the 14th. Despite this the contest was still in the balance until we claimed match no.2 on the 17th hole. Our third pairing also claimed victory on 17 to the delight of of the West Waterford supporters. Our panel was Morrie Ferncombe, Shane Roche, Luke Swayne, Colm O Callaghan, Richard Hyde, John O Mahoney, Andy Hickey, Pat Higgins, Ken Fenton, Lanson Kelly, Des Cleary, Richard Ronayne, Owen O Keeffe, Ken Fenton and Kenny Walsh. Team manager Stephen Spillane has put a lot of time and effort into preparing his team and is to be commended on his professional approach to his duties. Thank you to all the supporters who travelled to Youghal over the two days.
JB Carr Tournament
Terry O Callaghan’s JB Carr team continued their winning streak when they grafted out a hard earned, but deserved win over Tramore at West Waterford on Monday 7th May. The 3-2 victory secured our place in the County final where we face Waterford Castle over two legs. The Castle have chosen to play the first leg at home on Monday 21st May with the return leg at West Waterford on Monday 28th May at 3pm. Best of luck to Terry and the boys in the county final.
