Galway take the double in a thriller

​​Heartbreak for Galway Bay at the third tie hole

  • 13 August 2017

​There is no doubt after this weekend's outstanding AIG Finals at the glorious Galway Bay Golf Resort that there is a new heir apparanet to the Senior Golf throne in the province but they will have to wait one more year at least to claim it.

After an absorbing final that had numerous momentum swings in the afternoon sunshine it was the greater experience blended with some outstanding youth that saw them squeeze over the line at the thrid Tie Hole.

Joe Lyons got Galway's opening point with a 2/1 win over Damien Glynn which was canelled out by Michael Joseph Kennelly beating Liam Nolan 3/1 in match 4. 

One each became two each when Eddie McCormack (Galway Bay) beat Ronan Mullarney (Galway) on the 18th and Luke O'Neill (Galway) holed from 30feet for a birdie 3 also on 18 to claim a come from behind win against Michael Shiel.

Whilst that drama came to a conclusion the top match was now on the 3rd tee their 21st and unfortunately a lost tee shot led to a double bogey 6 for Galway Bay's Jack Tuohy allowing Liam Power, his Inter Provincial colleague, to seal the win with a bogey 5 before a super gallery.
