The Carroll’s Irish Open was held at Royal Dublin. After rounds of 67, 67, 70 and 67, Seve Ballesteros prevailed by two shots over Brian Barnes. The following day, on the 15th of August, Seve was at Cork Golf Club, teeing it up with the now legendary Irish golfer, Liam Higgins. It was an exhibition match but that didn’t mean bragging rights weren’t at stake for both Seve and Liam were renowned for their length off the tee.
