McCarthy continues leading role in Lahinch, South of Ireland Day 2

Paul McCarthy Munster Youths Tralee

Paul McCarthy

Paul McCarthy shot another under par round to finish the strokeplay phase in a tie for second place.  McCarthy shot a two under par 70, with two birdies in the last three holes to get back into the red.  McCarthy, currently playing off +2 was just one shot behind leader Jake Whelan from Newlands.  Peter O’Keeffe carded his second successive 74 to finish in on +4 and safely inside the cut for the matchplay phase.  Cork’s John Hickey finished one shot outside O’Keeffe, Hickey was having a solid round until the 11th when he went on to bogey five of the closing holes.  Both O’Keeffe and Hickey were in great positions after the opening round, and solid second rounds meant that they were never at risk of missing the cut.

Kinsale’s Cathal Butler was hovering around the cut line after day one and a second round 73 certainly helped his chances of making the matchplay draw.  Butler was one under through 14 holes but bogied three on the trot.  The Munster Strokeplay Champion was always likely to make the cut but had to wait until late this evening before he was assured of a place in the draw.  When play closed the cut (64) fell at 152 with two of the six players on +8 making it through.

That meant that there was no joy for Mark Ford (+8), Dave O’Donovan (+9) or Ian Spillane (+9).  Mallow’s James Sugrue made a great improvement on his opening 82.  Today the Mallow golfer had four birdies on his way to a level par 72.
