Kinsale’s Gary Ward

Three Cork clubs will be chasing glory this weekend in Tramore as the last of the AIG Cups and Shields finals are down for decision.  Barton Shield holders Kinsale put on a strong performance at home in the qualifiers to come through the tough South Munster section.  Although they’re without John Murphy this weekend, Kinsale have a strong panel and with the experience of last year and the guidance of Ger Cullinane, they’ll be ready to take on Limerick.  Cathal Butler and Gary Ward have been playing well recently, both golfers were central to the win in Thurles last year and they will certainly be hoping a repeat of that performance.

AIG Senior Cup Munster Finals 2017, Saturday 12th August 2017There was no joy for Cork clubs in Tralee on Saturday as both Cork and Mallow exited at the semi-final stage of the Munster finals.  Mallow were in action in the AIG Senior Cup and for a while it looked like they would beat Limerick in their semi-final.  Paul McCarthy and James Sugrue led from the front and both recorded impressive wins, McCarthy won 3&2 while Sugrue won on the 14th.  Conor Dowling lost match, as did Brian Attridge meaning the result would be decided by Adam Boland’s match with Limerick’s Justin Kehoe.  They were all square on the 15th but Kehoe won the 16th to go one up.  Boland made a huge six foot putt on the 17th to avoid losing and a great birdie on the 18th meant that the match went on to the 19th.  Both players found the fairway on the additional hole and the advantage swung Continue reading
