Bridget Walsh just loses out in play-off at Seniors Strokeplay Championships

Ladies All-Ireland Seniors Strokeplay Championship 2010

These championships were held at Lakeside, Co Tipperary, on Saturday last, September 18th.

The Junior section resulted in a tie between Bridget Walsh (Cunnigar) and Nora

Tierney (Prosperous), both of whom carded the same score. The 9 hole play-off

between Nora and Bridget proved to be a close affair with no more than a couple

of shots separating the players over the first seven holes as Nora led all through.

Over holes 8 and 9 Bridget hauled back the lead and they were all square after the

first 9. On the first sudden death hole Nora grabbed the initiative to emerge

victorious. This was a magnificent display of pitch and putt by

Bridget, who must consider herself so unlucky

not to have come away with a major National title.

Congratulations from everyone at the club!!
