Munster Under 15/17 Close Championship, Carrick on Suir Golf Club, Thursday 4th August 2016Munster inter-provincial player Edward Walsh led a strong charge from Mallow today at the Munster U15/17 Close at Carrick on Suir.  Walsh was two clear of the field at the end of play, posting a one under par 71.  Walsh got off to a great start with a birdie on the first hole but he went on to bogey the index two 4th hole.  He played some very steady golf after that, carding 12 pars and 2 birdies.  He stood on the 18th tee on -2 but a frustrating three putt on the final hole was the only blemish on a great performance.  Walsh, playing off 2, was a member of the victorious Munster U16 Interprovincial team recently.  He finished two shots clear of Cahir Park’s Ian Halpin and Fota Island’s Shane Galvin was third with a 74.

Killarney’s Luke Walsh won the Under 15 prize, thanks to a birdie on the last which meant that he beat Mallow’s Daniel O’Sullivan by a single stroke with a 75.  There was more good news for Mallow when Ronan Feerick took third place, carding Continue reading
