Mooney and Higgins shine at Tullamore Pro-Am

Must read

Laughter is the best medicine

Cocooned and cooped up as we are, laughter is the best medicine to get through it. Here's a few crackers that should bring a smile to your face, though some are a little too close to the bone!

The pure fun of golf

'It's true that golf is a humbling game whatever equipment we use, so why not experiment? We shouldn't allow our fragile egos to get in the way of discovering pure golf fun'

Ireland’s Top 10 Par Threes

We're compiling our top 10 par threes in the country and at number 8 sits a hole played by Ireland's best male amateurs each year. We'll post one a day until we get to the top. Any thoughts on number one yet?

Where does a system reboot leave us?

The reset button has effectively been hit on the 2020 season. The question is, what game progress has been saved and what glitches have been removed when the system reboots?

David Higgins (Waterville Links) and Damian Mooney (D Mooney Golf) came out on top at the Tullamore Pro-Am in aid of Pieta House.

Mooney and Higgins posted rounds of three-under-par 67 to finish one shot ahead of Simon Thornton (Tulfarris Resort).

Mooney, who got his round underway at the fifth, made a poor start with back to back bogeys. He played his opening nine holes in one-over par but responded with a run of four birdies in seven holes to finish on three-under.

Higgins, who is on vice-captain duty with team GB&I this week at the PGA Cup (27-29 Sept), played some very steady bogey-free golf with three birdies coming at the fifth, ninth and the 13th.

“I have been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks and months. That was lovely. I played really well,” said Higgins.

“I will be playing against the lads in the warm-ups. It’s good to have my game in shape so I can give them a good match.”

The team prize went to Thornton, who guided Enda Brennan, Mick Hannon and Rob Tormey to success with 89 points.
