Book now – CLUBS TO HIRE EXPAND IN BEAUTIFUL PORTO A winter chill in the air was no match for Jonathan Yates' hot scoring at the latest edition of the Race to 59 at Corballis. The Naas professional claimed the Gross Prize on week 17 with a blistering 61 in cold, drizzly conditions to continue his fine form since claiming an Alps Tour card last month. On any other day amateur Rhys Clarke's 63 would surely have proved enough to snatch top spot but the runner-up came up against a brick wall in Yates. In the Nett competition, Derek Harrison claimed first prize with a wonderful 63 of his own while David Brabazon finished second, a stroke further back after a superb 64. The series resumes tomorrow with everyone at Corballis continuing to present the layout stunningly each week despite the weather. YATES TAKES CHEQUERED FLAG AT CORBALLIS RACE TO 59 he Portuguese International Ladies Amateur Championship, the first Euro- pean international event of the year, begins at Montado Golf Resort this week. The 72- hole stroke play championship runs from Janu- ary 30 to February 2 and five Irish players are set to compete among the international field. Lisburn's Paula Grant, who began her year at the South American Amateur Championship in Chile with a top-15 finish will be aiming to improve upon that result this week at Montado. Ballinrobe's Shannon Burke, who played alongside Grant at the Home Internationals in Ballybunion last August, returns to Portugal this year having not played in 2018 due to University commitments. Ciara Casey (Hermitage), Aine Donegan (Woodstock) and Elisa Corcoran (Grange) join Grant and Burke to put their winter practice to the test on a competitive stage.
