But a dyed-in-the-wool GAA man, and lively corner-forward, is not about to neglect the unholy trinity of Davy, Brolly, and Ger If you thought the Masters didn’t go well for the Irish, think again. As a certain sketch alluded to, Pádraig Harrington didn’t even make it to Augusta, probably more so for “not playing great golf” than any alleged fluctuation in his cholesterol levels. Shane Lowry likewise was left to watch forlornly on from the margins over a pint or two of stout. And though Rory McIlroy did make it down Magnolia Lane and even the final day’s final pairing, an underwhelming fourth round meant that green jacket is still “the one major I don’t have”. For the creator of that sketch though, the 2018 Masters has been nearly as much … [Read more...] about The Kieran Shannon interview: Conor Moore is all about making a good impression
