Un­til 2018 then…

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GOLF -

As wooly hats and pre­ferred lies loom large, so this col­umn goes into hi­ber­na­tion for the win­ter.

I hope read­ers have en­joyed fol­low­ing the ups and downs of the golf­ing sum­mer, one that pro­vided plenty of re­mark­able feats, spec­tac­u­lar wins and heart­break­ing losses.

Kil­lar­ney ladies com­plet­ing a se­nior dou­ble, Bal­lyk­isteen claim­ing a first na­tional crown, a stun­ning year for Peter O’ke­effe, and David Hig­gins and Damien Mc­grane help­ing GB&I win back the club pro­fes­sional’s ver­sion of the Ry­der Cup were all high­lights of 2017.

Our golf cov­er­age will con­tinue, of course, with the weekly re­sults and all the im­por­tant news from the pro and am­a­teur game over the win­ter. I look for­ward to 2018 when hope­fully an­other great year awaits.
