Mooney, McGovern and McDermott bid for International Team Championship

The PGA of Ireland will be represented by Damien Mooney, Brendan McGovern and Michael McDermott at the 2014 PGAs of Europe International Team Championship on the 8th – 11th December.

Both Mooney (Ballyliffin) and McGovern (Headfort) are experienced
campaigners at this particular event but McDermott (Pure Golf
Leopardstown), will be making his debut in the competition.
Mooney was part of a winning team Ireland in 1998 at Atalaya Park in
Spain alongside Damien McGrane and Robert Giles (Greenore).
Giles was also a member of the team in 2008 when Ireland collected their
second title, also in Spain at Roda, alongside John Kelly (St Margaret's)
and Eamonn Brady (Clontarf) when they powered to a record 10 shot
win.
Mooney sees no reason why Ireland cannot make it three wins this time
around in Turkey.
“We have every chance of doing well. We've been here for a week
practising and getting ready and things are looking good,” said Mooney.
“Ireland did well last year. Brendan played on that team and they were
unlucky not to win it.”
Last year, Ireland, represented by McGovern, Cian McNamara
(Monkstown GC) and John Kelly finished tied for third alongside Wales
and Denmark, just three shots behind the winners Holland.
The Dutch team was represented by Ralph Miller, Robin Swane and
Nicolas Nube, and it was their second victory having won for the first
time back in 1991.
The tournament will see teams from across the PGAs of Europe 36
member countries play a 72-hole strokeplay competition across Gloria
Golf Resort’s New Course with the best two individual scores each day
from the team of three counting towards the overall team score.
