IRISH MIXED FOURSOMES
The Irish Mixed Foursomes Team had a very successful weekend in Co. Tipperary Golf Club. Meeting Cahir Park on Saturday this was always a tough task but the Thurles Team came out on top with wins in the 1st, 2nd and 4th matches. Thurles progressed to meet Templemore on Sunday morning. Again a very exciting encounter with wins for Thurles in the 1st and 2nd matches and we then had to wait for the last match with a great win on the 18th, with the other 2 Thurles matches finishing on the 17th and 18th so all to play for to the very end. The Thurles team had to wait to see their opponents in the afternoon with Tipperary coming out on top against Co. Tipperary. Again this match was a very exciting affair with one win each for Tipperary on the 14th and Thurles on the 16th, then Thurles got a 2nd win on the 16th so all headed to the 18th green where Thurles had their 3rd win. All very exciting and sporting matches all weekend with some great golf to be watched. Thurles now progress to the area final against Dungarvan date and venue to be confirmed. Well done to all the team, managers and supporters.
