GOLFERS around the globe will be able to watch the West of Ireland Championship final live on the internet from Rosses Point in Sligo.

The April 10 decider will be shown by Joe Lyons on his new website golfwithamember.com, set up to encourage golfers to play at member rates with their fellows from other clubs nationally and, eventually, abroad.

Lyons, who succeeded Rory McIlroy as West of Ireland champion in 2007, plans to video the final himself ... with a substitute standing by should he make it into this year's decider!
