Until 2018 then…
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.
