ORTUMNA WIN PIERCE PURCELL CONNACHT TITLE AT GALWAY BAY GOLF CLUB.
“It was a nightmare deja vue for the Gort men as for the second year running they lost a 2up with three to go lead in the deciding match of the AIG Pierce Purcell Shield Final handing the most unlikely of wins to a courageous Portumna who never gave up. This was epitomised by the heroic pair who having chipped in for birdie on 17 to draw the match all square then drove out of bounds on 18.
They gathered themselves though and when Gort found bunker trouble it was Portumna who held their nerve and in making par with the second ball grapped victory from the jaws of defeat.”
Huge congratulations to team manager Leslie O’Meara and the team/panel on their wonderful success and best of luck in the All Ireland series.
