Seniors,Thursday, 5th August, 2021
After the heatwave, the deluge. No competition last Thursday, 5th because the heavy rain had forced the closure of the course. This gives us an opportunity to review the matchplay, which has now reached the quarter final stage although there are still two matches to be played in the top half of the draw to complete the quarter final line up. Here is the current quarter final lineup:- Kevin O’Rourke v Leo Kavanagh; Frank McGrath/Seamus Mulherne v Sean Gilmartin/Robbie Donaldson. The bottom half of the draw is complete, as follows:- Albert Hogg v John Moffatt; Michael Keville v Barry Donnellan. The pundits are of the opinion that the bottom half of the draw is the strongest with the likely overall winner coming from Hogg, Moffatt or Keville, although they seem to be forgetting that the current form golfers are in the top half, being Leo Kavanagh and Robbie Donaldson. Exciting times ahead, no doubt.
