One major left for the Men, the Covid delayed June medal the weekend starting Friday 9th October.

The big question is can Sean de Gleeson make it an unprecedented three in a row? Paddy Power has closed the book on that one! Although rumour has it that Lar Mooney has opened his own book.

One way or another the final major will have a major bearing on the outcome of the Men's Golfer of the Year.

Lar's brilliant Captains Prize victory catapulted him to the top of the Order of Merit and as we approach the end of the season he holds a three point lead over Roy Fetherston and Tom Ainsworth.

With Roys recent finger injury now apparently golf healed, he will be pushing hard to take back the top spot. Watch out for pushed back tees and some scary pin positions! Ah Roy, you wouldn't.........would you?

As for Tom, well if ever there was the proverbial dark horse he would have been wearing Ainsworth colours! Just three points off the pace Tom is waiting to pounce and if he can hit form on the day Lar will at least have to take second place to stay top of the table.

Niall McDonnell is hovering in the background on 62 points, 11 behind Lar. A Medal win will leave the field with work to do and you certainly would not bet against Niall. Always the man to produce a score under pressure, Ballinascorney's answer to Roy Keane!

Sean de Gleeson has also battled his way into contention. Victory however will require that third consecutive Medal and favourable results elsewhere. The easy part for Sean might be winning the medal. Whatever happens his mothers nerves won't be the better of it!

No matter how we cut it though Lar is the man to beat! While many of us believe that he will close out the Order of Merit, nobody believes it more than Lar...................well maybe Hughie does! For sure whoever finishes above him can expect to be the Player of the Year.

The die is cast and the contenders are now clear and obvious. I think the photograph of the stag is very appropriate.

Now sit back and enjoy the spectacle!
