Manager Greg Edwards
Tulfarris participated in the Jimmy Bruen Cup Regional Qualifiers played at The Heath today and missed out on qualifying by a very narrow margin.
Eighteen Clubs participated with the early part of the day providing totally dry golfing weather. The first pair on the Tulfarris team teed off at 1.20 p.m. and to say that the weather for a lot of the afternoon rounds was atrocious would be to put it mildly.
The Tulfarris team consisted of 5 pairs playing foursomes golf: Phelim Dolan and Gerry Lambe; Mick Curran and James McCarron; Joe McConville and Kieron Ryan, Stephen Cullen and Pearse Daly and Niall Robinson and Eoin Curley. The best four scores counted towards the team score.
The qualifiers were: Castlecomer (332), Carlow (335), The Heath (337) and Portarlington (337). Tulfarris were just 4 shots off the pace on 341 which was right up there and ahead of other Clubs such as Rathsallagh, Blessington Lakes, Kilkenny, Birr, Mount Wolseley, The Heritage and others.
Team Manager, Greg Edwards said that he was very proud of the great effort put in by the players on the day and by the complete panel of members who had taken the trouble to practice the course on numerous occasions. He said that he was pleased to be associated with such a committed panel of players.
On behalf of the Club I would want to say a big thank you to all involved and especially to Greg who put a lot of work into ensuring that the team was well prepared and well motivated for the event. It was not for want of effort that Tulfarris did not quite make it through today.
