I finished a Challenge Tour event in Tullow, Ireland (just outside Dublin) at Mount Woseley GC on Sunday, September 17 with rounds of 77, 69. 68, 74 and I ended up tied 33rd.
Scores in the afternoon wave the first day (when I competed) were high due to wind and several storms. As you know, this time of the year rain comes through randomly in 30-minute to one-hour intervals in Ireland and when it does it’s amazing how quickly things change. Anyway, we hit a particularly difficult storm around 7:00pm the first day as I had four holes left and I made bogey on three of them. I came back, though, during the second round and I went into the last hole (actually the 9th since I started on #10) at two under with a two-day total right on the cut line. I needed a par on the finishing hole, and fortunately I knocked in a 40-footer for birdie to finish up with a three-under total for round two and to make it to the weekend.
My shot-making during the third round was very sharp, and really I could’ve had a special score but a few short putts didn’t go in and a ten-foot birdie putt on 17 did a 360-degree trip around the hole but stayed out. In any event, I shot four under for the third round and on the final day I had it three under thru eight but I didn’t finish off the way I wanted.
All the best, Brinson
