My greatest Irish golfing memory...
|2nd green on the Old Course at Ballybunion|
My greatest golf story:
The Tournament, “The Kerry Boys Championship”:
Consequently, after my first round qualifying score I was wandering around the Pro-shop looking at the latest range of clubs and admiring all the nice clothes that were on display. There I started a conversation with Brian O Callaghan the Head Pro at BallyB. Brian, the very nice gent that he is, he openly gave me a number of tips and advice on how to play the course. He mentioned what shots not to take on and what holes I could take a chance on making birdies. Brian, to his credit, was 100% correct with his advice and I followed it down to the last letter. Plus on another note, he is still the Head Pro at Ballybunion almost 20 years on.
