Lady Captains Prize

Congratulations to Geraldine Hickey who kept her cool during the heatwave to capture the lady captains prize for 2022.  I would imagine plans are already underway in the Hickey household for the upcoming trip to Druids Glen.  Top marks to lady captain Ciara Donnelly on organising a memorable weekend.

 

Palmerstown Scratch Cup

Well done to Philip Spratt  on gaining third place in the recent scratch cup at Palmerstown golf club.

 

Gary Hurley

Gary has had a busy three weeks playing in the Challenge Tour at the K Club and in Finland.  Last week he competed in the DP World Tour event at Galgorm Castle in Antrim.  The Aglish man acquitted himself admirably in all three events and will have gained invaluable experience from competing at a higher level.  Gary now returns to the Alps Tour and will feel confident of maintaining 5th place in the rankings which would guarantee him promotion to the Challenge Tour.

 

FedEx Cup Playoffs

Seamus Power was playing in the FedEx St Jude Classic in Memphis last weekend.  After a two-week layoff it wasn’t one of his better performances. 

While he missed too many fairways, his iron play let him down and he found just twelve greens in regulation over the first two days.  He followed a 71 on day one with a 73 on Friday to miss the cut on four – over.  This meant he dropped twelve places to 37 in the rankings, The good news is that he still qualifies for the BMW Championship this week from which the top 30 will advance to the final event at East Lake 25 – 28th August.
