Portumna take the final spoils of the Day at AIG Finals in Connacht

That's a wrap from a wonderful weekend of golf at Galway Bay Golf Resort

  • 13 August 2017

Day 3 belongs to Galway (AIG Senior Cup), Loughrea (AIG Junior Cup) and Portumna (AIG Pierce Purcell Shield)

It was a nightmare deja vue for the Gort men as for the second year running the lost a 2up with thre to go lead in the deciding match of the AIG Pierce Purcell Shield Final handing the most unlikely of wins to a curagous Portumna who never gave up. This was epitomised by the heroic pair who having chipped in for birdie on 17 to draw the match all square then drove out of bounds on 18.

They gathered themselves though and when Gort found bunker trouble it was Portumna who held their nerve and in making par with the second ball grapped victory from the jaws of defeat.
