Crosshaven U16 Golfers Through to All Irelands’
Venue: Macroom Golf Club
Coach: Mr. Fitzgibbon
Coláiste Muire’s opponents for the day were Bantry and Yougal. Fionn Murphy took centre stage, teeing off at 10:39am with a beautiful drive, splitting the fairway. Next to tee off was Joshua Hogan and finally Killian Murphy. All Crosshaven players were playing before 11:00am.
Fionn started brightly, going 5 over thru 9. These 9 holes included 8 fairway finds, 6 greens in regulation and one shot which hit the pin on the 7th hole from 100 metres. He then used his experience to play the back 9 calmly to come in at 8 over par. This was the days best gross.
Joshua Hogan played very well shooting 7 over thru 9. He was driving very well and had a few great putts. He finished 11 over with a great back 9.
Killian Murphy started well but unfortunately was having a hard time finding the green in very windy conditions. He kept battling and never dropped his head but it just wasn’t his day. He finished 22 over par after a few lip outs and a couple of unfortunate bounces.
After much deliberations the lads were told later that night that only the top two scores counted and that they had won the event.
They are now going on to the All Irelands. Well done lads!
