It was a great day for Irish Golfer Events yesterday as we got our 2018 event series underway on the Montgomerie Course at Carton House.
With two categories in play, nearest the pins, longest drive and best gross prizes on offer the event attracted an excellent field with some notable names including one of the winners on the day Leinster and Connacht mid-Amateur Champion 2017, Eddie McCormack.
The start of the Nature Valley Order of Merit was also announced with players having the chance to qualify for the Grand Final at the K Club in October with their best four cards counting across the 14-event series with the top 10 in the OoM making it to the final.
Conditions were tough with the wind making it difficult for all players but thankfully the rain eased off after some early showers and all had an enjoyable day.
