Round 2 at Lahinch Golf Club was chosen to be our Waist Management Team Championship featuring team shorts from Loudmouth Golf. Unfortunately we didn’t get to choose the weather as it rained all day from the 1st tee to the end. Only a couple of the most hearty golfers managed to play the entire day without rain pants.
Team Hollywood: Pete, Jeremy, Jamie, DaveT
Team Canada: DaveH, MikeL, MikeM, AG
Team Tiger: Sean, Steve, Kevin, Doug
Team Shamrock: MikeC, MikeG, Gord, Andrew
The match was a team net best-ball that produced a tie with Team Canada and Team Tiger coming in with a score of 73, with Team Hollywood following with a 76, and Team Shamrock at 77. The rules committee decided that due to the weather, the lack of seeing the teams together on the course in their matching shorts, the Waist Management Team Championship will be extended to a second round later in the tour, to be determined.
DaveT is the Round 1 leader of the Shamrock Cup. But only by retrogression against MikeM. Both finished with a Net score of 73. Dave was declared the leader by retrogression with his par on 17 to Mike’s bogey.
DaveT tries on the Shamrock jacket with MikeM stylin’ with the vest.
