P.P.U.I. - 19/08/2019 - John Manning reports on weekend from Irish perspective
John Cahill of Fermoy became the new European Strokeplay Champion after an absorbing battle with his Cork Inter-County team-mate John Walsh (Collins) at the Central Park course in Dagenham over the weekend. Cahill took command of the Championship with an opening round of 46 on Saturday morning and he led Walsh by two overnight when he signed for a 49 on Saturday afternoon. Playing together in the final group on Sunday, the Cork men traded birdies all through and although Walsh closed the gap to one and made a sensational par at the last after miss-hitting his tee-shot, Cahill calmly rolled-in a four foot par putt on the home green to claim the title.
