One Bad Hole Can be a Killer !!!!!
Seeing that the golf has been cancelled and I need something to get my mind off tomorrow’s final round. I have done a bit of routing about on how did I do and saw that a lot of people cards were ruined by the score they had on one or two holes.
here is a sample of what I found !!!
Peadar Griffin had an 8 on the 15th
Aidan Farrell had an 8 on the second
Paul Roach had an 8 on the 12th
Tommy Mulvey had an 8 on the 14th
Tom Daly had an 8th on the 7th
Andy Connellan had 8’s at the 2nd, 12th and 16th !!!
Niall Sweeney took an 8 off the 14th
Jim King had an 8 on the 15th
Brendan Boyle had a 9 on the 7th hole
Michael Nolan had 9’s on both the 12th and 16th !!
Adrian Byrne had a 9 on the 11th
Last year’s winner Gerry Mc had a 9 on the par 3 13th
Johnny Martin had a 9 on the 9th
Niall Roach had a 9 on the 4th
But to show how a low man can have a bad score on a hole let me elaborate on the score Noel McDermott had on the 6th hole.
1st shot. Sliced drive off to the right off tee out of bounds.
2nd shot. Penalty shot for driving the ball out of bounds.
3rd shot. Second drive off tee into the left rough.
4th shot Iron out of the rough short of the green.
5th shot chip over the back of the green
6th shot chip back towards the green but hit his own bag with his ball
7th shot first penalty shot for hitting his bag
8th shot second penalty shot for hitting his own bag
9th shot chip onto the green
10th shot Putt into the Hole !!!!!!! (thank God !!!)
That’s how a 10 handicap golfer makes a 10 on the 6th hole in Carrick on Shannon.
He’s going to kill me for this !!!
