Blue skies and sunshine greeted the golfers in Lee Valley this morning for the final round of the EMC Lee Valley Senior Scratch Cup. 31 golfers made yesterday’s cut which fell at 152 John Murphy (Kinsale) and Shane Hogan (Nenagh) got the third round underway at 8.45am after a brief delay for frost .
Leaders Andrew McCormack and Colm Campbell will tee off at 10.25 am along with Jamie Fletcher in the final group. No overnight rain means that the course will have dried out even. Reports from yesterday that the course was playing long are likely to be repeated today, although the quick green could be even quicker.
