So there’s Murph and caddie Peter O’Keefe stood on the par-5 ninth, their last hole of the second round of the Irish Open,and they are at level par for the tournament.
Just off to the right they see a small scoreboard that reads “T65 and ties cut at -2”. The need eagle. But the hole is playing into the wind, and nobody is going for it in to two. It’s too risky. It’s impossible.
Murph, being the legend that he is, unleashes holy hell on a driver down the middle, then jumps on a three wood which rolls up to 12 feet. He brushes the putt in for eagle to make the cut on the number.
Now that is how you do minus two in style! Well done lads!
