Competition AIG Pierce Purcell 2020
Format:- Four-Ball match play.
Carlow is never an easy challenge and in a very tight and hard fought Pierce Purcell match the Kilkenny team came out the wrong end of gigantic battle by a score of 3 & 2.
Kilkenny won the first two matches at home but, Carlow took full advantage when they won their opening match on home soil.
The result was in the balance until the very end with the Kilkenny lads losing the final two matches in ‘extra time’.
A big thank you to all involved for the huge effort and was very much appreciated by the Team Managers.

Callan Scratch Cup
Congratulations to Kilkenny member, Ivan Brown, who won the Callan Scratch Cup earlier this month.
Ivan has been in great form recently beating SS by five in Mount Juliet and followed up with a similar score to win in Callan.
Members still refuse to put their name, and handicap on their scorecard.
It is the responsibility of each person to ensure that they complete their score card correctly.
Despite last weeks reminder, members continue to forget to ensure the basics are completed on their card.
There were a number of incidents again this week.
Failure to do any of the above will lead to disqualification and this is being implemented immediately.
A reminder that if you feature in the top three of an away competition or Classic you must record you score on the sheet on the notice board in the foyer.
