The first day at the Trump International Doonbeg Golf Club was the WORST weather that nearly everyone on the tour had ever played in. The rain never let up all day and the wind was at steady 40-50km/hr with gusts to 70km or above. Going out on the front 9 the wind was left-to-right crosswind and coming back in on the back 9, right-to-left. BRUTAL!!
This was the first day of the Ryder Cup between Team Miller and Team Palmer:
Team Miller: Andrew, Pete, Doug, MikeG, DaveT, Q, JJ, MikeC
Team Palmer: Steve, AG, DaveH, Jamie, MikeM, Sean, MikeL, Gord
The Fourball matches ended with 2.5 points to Team Miller and 1.5 points for Team Palmer.
