Apologies

We would like to apologies to members and visitors for any inconvenience during the ongoing decoration work in the hallway and office. 

 

FedEx Cup Playoffs

Seamus Power is currently ranked 25th in the Fedex cup rankings.

The FedExCup Playoffs feature a progressive cut, with fields of 125 for the FedEx St. Jude Championship (TPC Southwind, Memphis, Tennessee), 70 for the BMW Championship (Wilmington Country Club, Wilmington, Delaware) and 30 for the TOUR Championship (East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia), where the FedExCup Champion will be determined.   Based on recent form Seamus will be hoping to progress from round one and should he make the last 30 he is guaranteed a sizeable cheque.  We wish Seamus the very best of luck in the Playoffs.

 

Gary Hurley to play European Tour Event

The ISPS Handa World Invitational is a DP World Tour event.  On foot of his recent performances Gary has received an invitation to play in this event which is being held at Galgorm Castle GC in Co Antrim.  The event will be played on August 11-14th and carries a prizefund of 1,500,000 USD.  As always we extend our best wishes to Gary and congratulate him on his current success.

Competition Scoring Analysis

As you are aware the final round of  the Presidents was stroke play played off the blue markers.  Hole no 12 proved the most difficult with just 5 pars being recorded.  Hole 18 ranked as the easiest hole with 14 pars recorded. Holes 14,4, and 7 ranked 2,3, and 4 in order of difficulty.  Holes no. 2, 9, and 13 ranked 15,16 and 17 in order of difficulty.  The men’s committee would welcome members comments on the analysis as we would like to arrange more competitions off the blue markers if a majority of members agree.
