Doug Edgar: The unluckiest of them all?

Few golfers today would have heard of possibly the unluckiest of them all but here's the story of James Douglas Edgar, the Newcastle man who was destined to become the best player in the world

Dawn of the Planet of the Ape

Love him or loathe him, Bryson DeChambeau has become the biggest story in golf but was it science or a bruised ego that sparked his rapid weight gain?

David Higgins (Waterville Links) fired a three under par 69 to successfully defend his Galway Bay Resort Pro-Am title.

With a shot-gun start in operation, David started his round at the 10th and played his opening nine holes in one under par 35 courtesy of a solitary birdie at the 15th.
He picked up another birdie at the first, dropped a shot at the second but responded with back to back birdies at the third and fourth to come home in two under 34.
“It was a good three under round because it was a tough day, it was windy,” said the 44-year-old who played a key role in GB&I’s recent PGA Cup victory over the USA.
“I was in control, it was my type of day. It was blowing a good wind and I knew if I just played well that conditions were right up my street. I just had to make sure I didn’t get in my own way. I got the job done and it’s always nice to go back to a venue and retain a title.”
David finished one shot ahead of Colm Moriarty (Drive Golf Performance) with Damien McGrane back in third after a level par round of 72. Roganstown’s Brendan Walton and amateur partners, Brendan Lenyski, Matt Kavanagh and Walter McDonagh won the team prize with 95pts.
