History has been made and the new Egan Cup Champ on August 3rd, 2014 is Annette:
The competition for the first female champion was stiff as the 79 year old McGuire Matriarch played golf in the Egan Cup for the first time. Have a look at her style:
Golfer Pat, missing last year, shot the low round of the day with a 79 but younger brother Gerry gave him a scare when he was leading him by three shots after the first two holes. I finished with an 82 followed by Doug with an 84 and Sean with an 87. Then came Tim with a 93 followed by Leo with a 94. Then Liam had a 95 and almost beat his Father. Now wouldn't that be something to write about. I will not embarrass the other golfers by listing their scores.
The highlight of the day was when Liam and Adam played in the regular Egan cup as they are both now 15 and they put a lot of the other golfers to shame on the links.
The Egan Putt contest was another exciting one. It started off with the youngest to the oldest, Cooper, Ty, Brayden, Allison, Alex, Adam, Megan and Liam. Everyone had three chances at an 8 foot putt. Ty and Liam were the only ones who got it in and they were advanced to the second round. The excitement was building with hundreds of golfers watching. The second round was empty as no one made a putt. It was on to the third round and my Grandson drilled one into the hole. Then Liam started and he was lucky enough to get two putts in the hole and won the Egan Putt for 2014. The presentation was done by last year's winner Alex to brother Liam. The Egan Cup rules committee has received a protest that Liam and Adam should not have competed because they are now regular golfers on the Egan Cup Tour. The Rules Committee will meet soon to make a decision on this protest.
It was great to see Gaye at the Egan Cup after her two months in hospital. Nurse George has been given all the credit but he was too tired out to play golf. Next year he will win.
Now there are three champs in Leo's family, who runs the Egan Cup and the scoring system with Pat. Interesting. There was also another first as we now have the first husband and wife Egan Champs.
The 8th year of the Egan Cup has come to an end but Sam is confused with it all as you can see from this photo. Of course George is also confused.
Until next year.
