Keep an eye on Michael Hoey this week at Portrush; despite three Tour wins in the last 18 months, he continues to go under the radar. Commenting on his practice rounds before the 2012 Irish Open Hoey said “They’ve got the course set up perfect here. It’s playing long!”

Hoey’s Three Holes To Watch
“The par three’s will be crucial this week. The sixth is playing tough and the 14th “Calamity” was somewhere between a 2-iron and 3 wood today. The 17th is also really tough. The massive bunker is actually in play. Hit it in there and you could have a 10!”
