Tiger and JP’s unlikely friendship

My day with Tiger Woods

Ronan Mullarney proved his wind prowess once more to claim the Nett prize as Jonathan Yates took the Gross at the latest TaylorMade Winter Series event at Portmarnock Links. 92 players took advantage of a fine, fresh winter’s day on Dublin’s coast with Galway professional Mullarney, no stranger to a stiff breeze, firing five birdies on his way to a superb 68 to take the Nett prize by two shots from SQ Golf’s Steven Quinlan.

Meanwhile, Naas professional Yates made the turn in two-under with birdies on the fourth and ninth and threatened to go into overdrive with three birdies to start the back nine. A double bogey on the 14th halted momentum and was followed by another bogey on 17 before Yates birdied the last in a winning Gross score of 68, finishing one stroke clear of Royal Dublin’s Hugh Foley.

Popular as ever this year, perhaps even more so as players look to make up for lost time in this pandemic year, the next two weeks of the Series are already fully booked. Full scoring below:

Nett:

  • 1st       Ronan Mullarney (Pro)      Galway GC                          68
  • 2nd      Steven Quinlan (Pro)          SQ Golf                                 70
  • 3rd      Sean Whelan (2)                   Royal Tara GC                    71

 

Gross:

  • 1st         Jonathan Yates (Pro)        Naas GC                               68
  • 2nd        Hugh Foley (+6)                  Royal Dublin GC                69
  • 3rd        James Temple (+3)            Portmarnock GC               70
