It’s been an impressive six weeks for Jack McDonnell.
The Forrest Little golfer has been part of the Ireland team that won the Men’s Home Internationals and the victorious Connacht team from the Men’s Interprovincials. He also won the Dundalk Scratch Cup, beating local favourite and Ireland team mate Caolan Rafferty in a play-off.
McDonnell plays this weekend in the Munster Stroke Play Championship, hoping to continue his recent impressive form.
“I’ve never shot the lights out in Cork before. Players who have won this event before know how to plot their way around the golf course. I’m hoping to do that this weekend.
“I understand my own game more, which will be important on a course like Cork.
“My confidence is very high. I think that’s why I won in Dundalk, after just being selected for the Home Internationals team too.”
McDonnell goes into this weekend’s event in fifth place in the Bridgestone Men’s Order of Merit, and he’s happy it shows how consistent he has been in 2021.
“It’s nice to be up near the top of the rankings. Hopefully now, I’ll be able to win before the end of the season. That’s the goal!”
