Two years ago, in a Ryder Cup style match, Charlie (16 h’cap) and I took on Ronan (9) and Finbarr (19). It was a one-side match with Charlie and I taking all the money.

|Green to tee (above the Irish cross) on the 12th. Charlie's birdie putt to come - his ball is next to the flag.|
Team of the day
Called the "Augusta of Europe”, Druid’s Glen was designed by Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock. It opened in 1995 and hosted the first of four Irish Opens in 1996. The price to play here doesn’t reflect that at all, with green fees ranging from the current €45, to €85 on a weekend in July… play on a weekday and it’s just €55.
A big thank you to Druid’s Glen Resort – the course was in great condition and the greens were perfect. My golf was poor but my love for the place shines on.
