I hope Moyni­han slog will all be worth it in the end

Irish Daily Mirror - - SPORTS -

GAVIN MOYNI­HAN has been in con­tention for earn­ing his card at Q-school.

I hope he gets over the line in to­mor­row’s fi­nal round in Spain be­cause it would be a huge feat.

It has been a gru­elling sched­ule for Gavin and com­pany tee­ing it up at Lu­mine Golf Club. Prior to play­ing six rounds of high pres­sure golf in Tar­ragone, Moyni­han had two weeks in China and two in the Mid­dle East.

To call it emo­tion­ally drain­ing is an un­der­state­ment. For those guys lucky enough to emerge this week, the de­mands of a wrap­around sea­son are only just be­gin­ning with the Hong Kong Open next week.

Af­ter that the main tour moves to Aus­tralia and then South Africa. You can be run­ning on fumes but you have no other op­tion but bat­tle your way through a make or break pe­riod. The fi­nan­cial cost for play­ers trav­el­ling around for smaller purses is also worth not­ing.

You can go through up to €20,000 in ex­penses dur­ing this six week stretch. Don’t get me wrong, the in­cen­tive is huge but it lurks at the end of a pe­riod of phys­i­cal, emo­tional and fi­nan­cial strain.
