Golfshake Podcast and Irish Golf
A couple of days ago I did a podcast with
Golfshake, in the UK. The podcast is hosted by Kieran Clarke and Owen Davies
and I had been invited on to talk about golf in Ireland – and West of Ireland
Golf and the Irish Open in particular.
Portstewart plays host to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open (6-9 July)
There were technical glitches at my end –
my broadband dropped several times, including just as I was being introduced
which left Kieran and Owen to fill in and then re-introduce me – but we had a
grand chat about the state of golf in Ireland and the buzz around our national Open.
Co Sligo Golf Club is part of West of Ireland Golf.
There’s a few minutes of chat between Kieran
and Owen at the star, regarding the tour wins this past weekend, and what’s
interesting about that is Bernd Wiesberger‘s victory…I reckon he is a great tip for the Irish Open.
