My day with Tiger Woods

After a highly successful (miraculous, more like) comeback at The Masters, Tiger Woods turned his thoughts towards competing in the 150th Open Championship at The Old Course in the middle of July. The question of a well-rehearsed, routine of coming to Ireland to...

St Colmans are Munster Champions again after brilliantly retaining their Irish Schools Junior Championship in Castlemartyr.

The rescheduled final saw St Colmans, St Francis Rochestown and Abbey Community College all in action.

Ciaran Rice, Ben Carey and Louie Roche were the members of the winning team, and all played well in the nice conditions.

Rice led the way for St Colmans, going out in the first group and returning with 39 points. Roche added 33 points to give Colmans a winning score of 72.

It was a great score for the 23 handicapper who was playing off the maximum handicap of 15 allowed in the competition.  Off his full handicap, he would have returned 41 points.

Abbey Community College were second on 68 points, with Alex Byrne, Shane Egan and Luke Cullen featuring on the team. Jack Murphy, David O’Sullivan and Eoghan Power were on the St Francis Team who finished with 67 points.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig made it a double-double when they won the Schools Senior Championship in Killarney. Colaiste Choilm and St Josephs Ballybunion had both won their semi-finals in Castlemartyr two weeks ago before rain forced the postponement of the final.

Both sides reconvened for the decider, and it was the Cork side who won in a 3.5-1.5 win over St Josephs.

Both Colaiste Choilm and St Colmans now go forward to represent Munster in the All Ireland finals which take place early next year.
