On this week’s edition we look back at the Irish Challenge at Portmarnock Links where, although no fans could see it, there were plenty of Irish eyes smiling as Dermot McElroy lifted the Christy O’Connor Jnr trophy as the top home player in Dublin. Interestingly, McElroy, along with the Ireland’s other leading players on the week, Michael Hoey, Cameron Raymond and Tom McKibbin will not benefit from Team Ireland funding in 2021. We discuss the merits of that system and also round-up all the action from across the tours with Leona Maguire beaten by eventual champion Ally Ewing in the LPGA Match-Play while we also look ahead to Stephanie Meadow competing at this week’s US Women’s Open. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen. If you do, don’t forget to subscribe and let us know what you think.
