SUBSCRIBE WEDNESDAY 10.4.19 WWW.IRISHGOLFER.IE .ie Padraig Harrington N Castlewarden's Lauren Walsh fired scores of 74 and 71 to beat Lisburn's Paula Grant into second spot at the Woodbrook Scratch Cup. Grant remains in pole position on the ILGU Scratch Cup Circuit at the halfway stage after winning last week at Royal County Down. But it was Walsh, who will sit her Leaving Certif- icate exams in a couple of months, who showed no ill-effects from her time spent in the books as she secured her first victory of the 2019 season. "Well worth the study break, Woodbrook Scratch Cup Winner," she tweeted. Clandeboye's Jessica Ross secured third spot behind Grant while Massereene's Lucy Simpson and Grange's Elisa Corcoran rounded up the top-5 places. The players now travel to Cork this weekend where, last year, Malone's Louise Coffey pipped Delgany's Lauren Murray on a countback. STUDY BREAK SUCCESS FOR WALSH AT WOODBROOK The Ryder Cup course at The K Club will play host to the Finals of the inau- gural GUI All-Ireland Gold Medals that gives club golfers a unique op- portunity to participate at individual level in a national GUI event. Each entered club will nominate one of their singles competitions as a club qualifier. Entrants on the day will compete in one of three handicap categories – 9 and below, 10-17 or 18 and over. The best nett score in each category will qualify for the regional final. Four regional finals will be held throughout Ireland in August of 2019, with all club qualifiers playing for a place in the All-Ireland Final. The best three scores in each category in each provincial final will advance (36 golfers in all). The All-Ireland Final of the event will take place at The K Club on Tuesday 8th October, with a meal and prize- giving ceremony taking place after their round. The full regulations for the competi- tion are available to view HERE GOING FOR GOLD – GUI ANNOUNCES NEW CLUB MEDAL COMP Naas CBS winners aas CBS got the better of Cistercian College to win the Leinster Inter Schools League Match Play Finals at Balt- inglass Golf Club on Monday. After beating St Michaels in the first semi-final by 3 holes, Naas looked strong with a 3 handicapper, two 4's and a 5 in their ranks, with Jamie Butler playing a key role as last year's win- ner of the Leinster Under 16 Championship. As expected, the lower handicapped play- ers came to the fore again in the final with Sean Clince and Daragh Behan racing five holes clear in the first game while Jamie Butler and Sean O'Rourke went three ahead early and never looked back in their match. Congratulations must go not only to Naas CBS but to the Committee of Baltinglass GC once again for the courtesy of their course and all the teams involved in the Leinster Inter Schools League Match Play this year.
