The 76th World Open One Armed Championships

Ballater Golf Club, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Monday 3rd June - Friday 7th June 2013

Winner: Alex Hjalmarsson

Alex Hjalmarsson

Runner Up: Reinhard Schuhknecht

Reinhard Schuhknecht

A fine golfing week culminated in a Matchplay final between two of our lowest handicap golfers, both off 5.

Alex Hjalmarsson, from Sweden, had held the title for the last years, beating Robert Paul on both occasions.

The other final contestant was new member Reinhard Schuhknecht from South Africa. Reinhard was very impressive all week taking the Stroke Play trophy with a two round gross score of 146, one shot ahead of Alex.

Whether it was nervesfrom Reinhard or not, we do not know, but Alex’s very steady play soon put him 3 up, and then 4 up, and although there was a little coming and going Alex closed the match out on the 16th when Reinhard drove in to a bunker.

Both players are an absolute credit to golf and the Society, and we hope to see them both at Seaford Golf Club next year.

The 3rd Fightmaster Cup
September 21st-23rd 2012
Hilton Indian Lakes Resort, Chicago
www.indianlakesresort.com
The resort is approximately 2m from Medinah. Go to www.indianlakesresort.com

This is the week prior to the Ryder Cup and will ensure maximum exposure to the Fightmaster and give participants the option of staying on to watch the Ryder Cup. The responsibility for getting Team Europe to Chicago will come under the stewardship of the Irish Fightmaster Committee who have made the following appointed persons as part of the working Group: -

Team Europe Captain for 2012 Mary Fahy, Vice Captains Keith Dewhurst, Nick Champness, David Schutsander, and Dougie Jopp. They in turn will be supported by Brian Fahy, Michael Cole, Michael O’ Grady and Society Vice President Brendan Swan.

Peter Priscott will act as Treasurer in the interim. It is estimated that this event will cost Team Europe in the region of €30k to suit and boot the Team and Captain for the duration of their stay in Chicago. We are currently in talks with a tour operator and will hope to have travel and accommodation package costs soon. Obviously the big issue will be funding the Team I would call on each Region, to come up with ideas for fundraising or any member who may have contacts with companies that may like to help in funding or merchandising which can go towards the 2012 Fight-master and Europe’s defence of the Cup.

The team will be selected at the St.Andrews Championship and will mainly rely on results from the last two years.

If anyone would like to come and support the team please contact Brendan Swan on onegolfswan@eircom.net
