Rosses Point proved too big a challenge for the six Cork golfers who played in the qualifying strokeplay round today. All were hoping to claim one of eight spots in the competition proper which starts tomorrow (Thursday).
Mark Healy (76) was the best of the Cork scores, he was tied for 25th place and two shots outside the playoff. Greg O’Mahony was one shot behind with Eoghan Long, Darragh O’Connor and Paul Tobin finishing down the field.
Seanie Barry, Niall Gorey, Cathal Butler, John Hickey, Mark Shanahan Paul McCarthy, James Sugrue and Ian O’Rourke are all in action tomorrow having qualified for the strokeplay on their handicaps.
