Tipperary

Last weekend we had the Coman Cup with 16 to qualify for matchplay. We had a very large entry for the second week in sucession. Again the course was in excellent condition and the weather allowed good scoring. The leading qualifiers were John Rainsfort and Mike Martin who both had 44 points. The lowest score to qualify was 40 points with two players on 40 points missing out.
