Insult to injury
BAD enough to miss the cut, but for Ulsterman Barrie Trainor, insult was added to injury when he was disqualified from the Irish Open at Killarney yesterday.
Trainor, currently second in the Irish Region of the PGA Lexus Order of Merit, went into the recorder's cabin at the end of his second round and filed a 74 for 144, two over par.
On emerging from the cabin, he had a horrible thought: he had taken five on the par-four 11th, instead of the four that was marked on his card.
Trainor, realising his mistake, immediately went back in to report the five, but it was too late.
He had signed his card for 74 instead of 75 and got the DQ.
