Comeragh Oil Winter League

Round 1 drew to a close on Sunday Jan 9 and round 2 gets underway immediately commencing o Monday Jan 10th. Thank you to everyone who played and entered a score in round 1. Well done to the team managers who got players out to return 4 scores for their respective teams despite the awful weather conditions over the past few weeks. As the round 1 leaderboard indicates, there is very little seperating the 12 teams and all is set up for a hectic battle for the qualifying matchplay stage. As always the Winter League committee have done an excellent job in selecting the teams and in keeping the managers informed on a weekly basis. With weather conditions set to improve and a stretch in the evenings we look forward to an improved turnout in round 2. Remember it’s your team and it’s your club, so let’s all do our bit to make 2022 a year to remember.

Power surges to 63rd in the World after top 15 finish in Hawaii.

Seamus Power shot a final round of six under 67 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii at the weekend to climb to a career high 63rd in the official World Golf Rankings as his rapid rise continues. The West Waterford man played his final 54 holes blemish free to finish in a share of 15th on twenty-under-par. Considering this was his first appearance at the event this was quite an achievement when you look at the big names behind him on the leaderboard. Seamus will rue a catalogue of missed opportunities on the greens but must be encouraged by his stellar play from tee to green. Following four opening pars in his final round on Sunday Seamus birdied the two par-fives (5 and 9) to turn in 34, and followed with a brace of birdies on 11 and 12 to put himself within reach of the top-10. Two more birdies on 15 and 18 saw him complete the back 9 in 33 for a cheque of €132,500.

This was an excellent performance from Seamus as he establishes himself among the elite on the PGA Tour. The ticket to Augusta in April is put on hold until next week at the Sony Open.
