The hopes for an individual medal at the Youth Olympics in Argentina may have passed for Lauren Walsh and David Kitt, but possibilities for team success still remain for the Irish duo.

Looking for information about the Irish golf team’s progress at the Youth Olympics is like looking for a needle in a haystack. With the official website proving to be more of a maze than a notice board, I reached out to Lauren Walsh to see how she’s finding golf in Argentina.

“So far, I have absolutely loved the Youth Olympic experience. It’s been cool to compete at such a prestigious event. It’s great that we get the chance to watch other Irish athletes contest in a number of different sports as well” said Walsh.

“The golf course has been tricky even though it’s not overly long. The greens are small and have proved difficult to read because of the grain, but I think David and myself have got better at figuring out the breaks as the days have gone by” admitted Walsh. Could more on-course preparation time have improved the results for the Irish competitors?

Walsh finished in tied 13th place for the tournament, with rounds of 75,73,75. Connacht’s David Kitt seems to have finished just outside the top 20 but the layout of the scoring website has made that very unclear. Walsh and Kitt will now compete in the mixed-team event over the next three days starting on the 13th of October.

“I’m excited for the team event, It’s a really good format. We don’t always get the chance to play competitive fourball and foursome rounds at home so it should be fun!”, said Walsh, prior to the opening round of the team event.

Best of luck to David and Lauren from all the team at Irish Golfer. Here is a link to the IGF site with all the info on the event
