Strong Showing by Seamus Power: 20 under in a normal PGA tournament would guarantee a top 10 finish. However after four long nights (that is for the West Waterford supporters!) Seamus finished tied 15th in the Sentry tournament (Tour of Champions) held in Hawaii. Seamus was playing against the elite golfers in the world and played super golf throughout. The Golfing Gods deemed that there should be record breaking scores and the eventual winner Cameron Smith returned a score of 34 under! We look forward to following Seamus throughout the season as he now moves into the 64th spot in the World Ranking. Seamus is a wonderful ambassador for Irish Golf and, even more importantly, for our Club!
Winter League – Seamus Power team take the Lead: Following the completion of the first round Team Seamus Power, captained by June Whyte lead the way with a score of 105 points. Leona Maguire’s team, captained by Ger Curran have 99 points while Gary Hurley’s team, captained by Denise Nugent fill the third slot with with 97 points. Team Shane Lowry captained by Nora Flynn have 96 points while Padraig Harrington’s team captained by Trish O Shea fill the 5th spot. Phil Kelly was the individual winner with a great score of 29 points playing off 33. Well done to all the players.
The next round concludes on the 18th February. The top four scores count but there are bonus points for all matches played. So, to get the scores on the board, you have got to go out and play for your team!
