US Scholarships paying dividends

THE US golf scholarship scheme has worked well for Irish and UK golfers, and there are five East Tennessee State players in the field at Carton House.

Amateur Seamus Power and professionals Cian McNamara, Gareth Shaw and Rhys Davies of Wales are all graduates of the college, while another Welsh amateur, Rhys Pugh, is currently studying at East Tennessee.

Waterford native, Power, who shot 69 commented: "I haven't seen Rhys Davies, Gareth Shaw and Cian McNamara in a while, so it's been great to catch up with them. It's like a reunion."
