The Lord of the Manor

Before I get accused of being unprofessional, which I most certainly am, it wasn’t meant to be another bring your dad to work day on Monday at the JP McManus Pro-Am. It just so happens that sometimes these things are beyond my control. For the record, I’ll admit that...

Four players share the lead at the end of the second round of the Irish U18 Boys’ Open Championship at Athenry Golf Club. There is a local flavour at the top of the leaderboard with Galway Bay’s Paraic McGrath and Luke Cunningham joined by Cork’s Morgan Cain and Douglas’ James Walsh on 1-over.

McGrath shot one of only three under-par rounds on the day with a 1-under 69. A round of 68 from Oughterard’s Liam Boyce wasn’t matched on Wednesday, and saw the Galway player shoot into the top-20, five shots behind the leaders.

First round leader Ross Campbell shot a round of 77, to join Boyce in the group on 6-over. Only two shots separates the top-11 players ahead of Thursday’s third round. The top-50 players and ties after the third round will make the cut for Friday’s final round.
