Murphy moves into double figures after 45 years
Our competition secretary Jimmy Murphy celebrates 50 years golfing in 2021. For the last 45 years he is justifiably proud of maintaining a single figure handicap throughout the entire period. On Sunday morning last Jimmy was out as usual at 8.30 with playing partners Eddie Stack and Tomas Curran. On signing in he discovered that his playing handicap had gone up to 10, double figures for the first time in 45 years. Whether or not the extra shot mattered he went out and shot 38 pts for the 18 holes. Well done Jimmy on a major achievement over the years and I am sure you will be back in single figures before too long.

Seamus Power in contention for top 70 in Fedex Cup Playoff
Due to the Northern Trust being extended to Monday we will not have a final result in time for our weekly notes. We are delighted to report that Seamus made the cut and is in a good position going into the final round to claim his place in the BMW Classic later this week. Seamus currently lying 40th on 5 under par after 3 rounds will need to find a low final round and move closer to the top 25 if he is to progress in the playoffs. Best of luck Seamus.
