Richard Finch just won The Irish Open in spectacular fashion!

On the 18th, he has a 3 shot lead. Hit's his par-5 lay-up into the hazard but above ground. The hazard being the River Maigue. He elects to go for the green - smashes the ball over the river while falling right in, boots and all.

Amazingly - he never takes his eye off the ball, and it lands on the left edge of the massive green. The crowd acknowledge the bravery and talent displayed and he receives a great applause. 3 putts later he's the Irish Open Champion.

Move over Woody Austin.

I hear where you are coming from, but Woody Austin is Aquaman.

We got to be more original and come up with a different nickname for this guy...something like...Splash Gordon

That guy went on to win it as well. I'm sure he's not too bothered about a bit of fresh Irish water as he won the comp and probably has done enough to secure his card for next year.

That was a tough shot and I think he had to give up his balance to be assured of making good contact. I don't think he could have released the club head through the ball on that steep slope and avoided falling.

he said he thought he could pull it off without fallling in the water - fearless!

made it all the more exciting when he did fall!

brilliant - more of the same next year! What a great closing 3 holes! the 16th modelled on Augusta's 12th, the 17th a tight long par 4 and the 18th beside and over a river - great design.

    • I found on YouTube and they are now on the Golf Channel a series called Me and My Golf. As Iacas said and why I watch them occasionally is for some basic fundamentals. They do have guests on their show, Rory McIIroy has been on the show a time or two. Piers Ward and Andy Proudman are the Host Instrctors.  They do a decent job. They do analyze videos from people who send a video in from time to time.  I find them to be better than Martin Hall and Blair O’Neal. It’s best to see a local PGA instructor in my opinion.
    • Yep, when people get comfortable they just want to go around ignorant of the world around them. Its easier that way. Our brain is super good at compartmentalizing things in a way. One big way has been the plain failure to see the people around us who are suffering because of institutional problems.
    • Yup you are. I have friends that are native Americans too. They applaud this. It’s one small step , but it will help. Ignorance of the the past is a failure that you seem to embrace.
    • A good way to work on reducing casting is to start with short swings and rehearse getting the hands to be in front of the ball at impact. Start with chips, then move to 1/4 swings, 1/2 swings and 3/4 swings. Learn to feel that position at impact. Film it to make sure is is working and post it here.
