Diarmuid Horgan wins his first Major

Congratulations to popular clubman Diarmuid Horgan on winning the Presidents prize at the weekend.  In an exciting finish Diarmuid just shaded it wih a 1 stroke advantage over Michael O Riordan.  “I have won many prizes in my 18 years at West Waterford but I never thought I would win a major” said an emotional Diarmuid in his acceptance speech.  The magnificent Criostal na Rinne trophy will take pride of place in the Horgan household.  Congratulations to all the prizewinners and a very special thank you to David Condon and his family for a great weekend.

Impressive Performance from Gary Hurley at the K Club

The local fans who travelled in numbers  to the K Club must have been delighted at the performance of their local hero Gary who produced some exceptional golf to finish tied 5th in the Irish Challenge Tour event last week.  Gary shot rounds of 68, 69. 69 and 73 to finish on 9 under par for a share of 5th place.  Gary was thrilled with his week and emotional at the finish as he claws his way back to form.

*I did win this week” said an emotional Hurley.  “I won for myself and my emotions and the way I handled myself.  It is becoming normal  at this stage. That doesn’t mean it is easy but this is the way I play and the way I operate.  I had great support and I always have. It’s probably why I am still doing it.  If I didn’t have that support three or four years ago, I mightn’t still be doing it.”

Gary returns to action this week when he plays in the Vierumaki Finnish Challenge in Finland on August 4-7th. He carries with him the full support of his loyal fans in West Waterford and Aglish.
