Rising Pitch

It's not only membership at 9 and 18 hole courses that's bloomed this year, Pitch & Putt is on the rise too. Kevin Markham looks at the game’s shortest form*

Going the distance with the USGA

After the biggest hitter in the game won by six-strokes on a golf course that was supposed to punish missed fairways, maybe it's time the 'Distance Insight Report' moved to stage two?

The virus has simplified bunker play

The temporary rule introduced this year to help deal with the pandemic of banning rakes from bunkers has been revolutionary and positive for club golfers

A two hour fog delay at Roscrea Golf Club didn’t distract East Clare’s Eoin Magill at the Munster Boys Under 16 Championship as he went on to shoot a superb one under par around to take the title.

Magill got off to a fast start once play was underway, recording birdies on his first two holes but he gave the gains back with consecutive bogies on the fifth and sixth to bring him back to level par. But the East Clare golfer was in determined mood and another birdie on the 8th saw him turn on one under.

Magill was playing some superb golf and went back to -2 after the 12th in the hot humid conditions but gave the shot back on the next hole.  He parred his way home from the 14th and his score of 70 was good enough to take the title.

Luke Cunningham (Galway Bay), Lucas Lyons (Limerick) and Corey Scullion (Moyola Park) all finished with level par 71’s.  Cunningham took second place on a countback while Lyons took the best under 15 prize.

  1. I used to know that young Magill fella when he was tiny – look at him now! There will be bigger cups coming his way soon because he has always had the heart of a lion.
