Padraig Dooley and Cian McNamara bounced back today from disappointing opening rounds at the PGA National Championship in Burnham & Berrow GC in England. Both carded poor first rounds, Dooley sot an 80 while McNamara recorded an 84. Fresh from his appearance in Royal County Down, McNamara bounced back on Wednesday with a 72, while Dooley signed for a 74. Both lie around halfway down the leaderboard but unfortunately they both missed the cut for the final two rounds as they were outside the top 50.
Waterville’s David Higgins leads the Irish charge, rounds of 74 and 72 have him tied for 6th place. Liam Bowler (Wexford GC) was the only other Irish golfer to make the cut.
