Irish women outdo the men in Morocco
It might be early days but with one third of the European Tour season now behind us, just six of Ireland's 12-strong tour army are inside the Top 110 in the Race to Dubai.
Nightmare weekend for Clarke in Morocco
As David Horsey claimed his second European Tour title with a play-off win over Rhys Davies and Jaco Van Zyl at the Hassan Trophy, Darren Clarke limped home in second last place after one of the worst weekends of his career.
The 42-year old Dungannon man was tied for third at halfway but followed up with rounds of 81 and 75 to finish 77th of the 78 finishers on seven over par.
Lawrie three clear as Lowry hits new low in Hassan Trophy
Peter Lawrie fired two eagles in a stunning eight under par 64 at the Golf Du Palais Royal to cruise into a three shot lead after the opening round of the Trophee Hassan II.
But Shane Lowry’s mental struggles continued as he found himself in second last place after a 10 over 81 on the Golf De L’Ocean track - his worst score since he turned professional 23 months ago.
McGinley focusses on longevity
Paul McGinley will attempt a golfing comeback worthy of Tiger Woods in Morocco on Thursday.
But while Woods bids to rebuild his shattered reputation, McGinley is fighting to keep his career on life support following an agonising, sixth operation on his left knee at the end of last season.
McGinley gets green light for Ryder chase
Knee victim Paul McGinley has been given the green light to embark on what would amount to a miracle Ryder Cup comeback.
The Dubliner, 43, hoped to hit the fairways running last month after undergoing a horror sixth operation on his crocked left knee nearly four months ago.
But after fearing the worst when he failed to make a quick recovery, he’s set to return in next month’s Hassan II Golf Trophy in Morocco thanks to some magic from Padraig Harrington’s physio Dr Liam Hennessy.
