No winners as golfer loses libel action over handicap
The golfer who sued the Golfing Union of Ireland and the handicap secretary of his former club has lost his libel action in the High Court. He must pay the costs of a prohibitively expensive (€500,000?), 21-day case and though he plans to appeal, it appears that no-one - bar the legal profession - has come out a winner in this one.
