Hoffman Wobbles Knocks Bruen From Top Of Leader Board
The top three from day one of Carrick Golf Clubs US Masters Challenge were replaced on the podium , by Mike Walsh -8, Turlough Bruen -5 & Jimmy Egan -4, ironically none of the three had the ill fated DJ on their selection. Walsh’s picks of Rory +1, Mickelson level, Spieth level, Rose -1, Fowler -4 & Sergio -4, good team & with Rory having possibly had his bad round it looks good for the Multyfarnaham man.
