Last weekend we had our annual scratch cups over the August weekend kindly sponsored by Pierse Motors Tipperary Nearly three hundred competitors braved some difficult weather conditions. Out of the three hundred nearly one hundred were visitors from all over Ireland. There was great scoring in all cups with the senior and junior off the blue markers and the intermediate and minor off the white markers.
The senior scratch cup was won by Sean Alley from Co. Tipperary Golf Club with a fine 74.
The junior scratch cup was won by Michael P. Ryan with a 76.
The winner of the intermediate scratch cup was Pat Merrigan with the best score of 74 this was the best gross score all weekend.
The winner of the minor scratch up was Jim Noonan with an 83.
This weekend we have our Vice Captain Tim Walsh’s prize.
Congratulations to Pat Murray
Congratulations to Pat Murray who had a magnificent win in the South of Ireland last week. Pat who is a native of Tipperary and played all his golf in Tipperary in his formative years has been at the top of the amateur ranks in Ireland for well over twenty years. The South was the title he coveted the most, he was beaten in six semi finals over the years so this victory was very sweet. There were great scenes on the 18th green when Pat was congratulated by all his supporters both from Limerick Golf Club and Tipperary Golf Club. The most emotional scene was when Pat was hugged by his parents Mick and Breda.
