Bornemann in control at Irish Senior Men’s Close

Douglas’ Karl Bornemann will take a six shot lead into the final round of the Irish Senior Men’s Close at Waterford Golf Club. Tied for the lead overnight, Bornemann posted an early second round of level par and credits his course management.

“Strategy has been to make sure I miss it on the right side, keep the ball in play, not being too aggressive and giving the course the respect it deserves and that’s helped. I’ve minimised the errors,” he said of his opening rounds of 70 and 71.

A win on Friday would add to recent successes of fellow Douglas members, including Sean Reddy winning the Connacht U14 Boys’ and Sara Byrne representing Ireland at the European Team Championships last week.

“It’s great, particularly coming from my end of the age bracket right the way through to Sean Reddy and Justin Denny at the other end,” Bornemann continued.

“It’s great to have that vibrancy as a panel of players. From my perspective it has helped keep things fresh and competitive and hopefully the experience that myself, Peter O’Keeffe and John McHenry have, and are able to pass on, has helped them.”

Although he takes a cushion into the final round, Bornemann is conscious of someone breaking from the pack.

“Typically in these things it will get tight towards the end, there’s plenty of talent here that could make a run, and the cliches all apply, it’s one shot at a time and not getting ahead of yourself. It’ll be more of the same, I wouldn’t say I’ve had my A game this week but I’ve managed what I’ve had. I’ll just play the course according to whatever game I have.”
