Episode 1862: Ireland’s Next Star Golfer James Sugrue On Playing The US Open, Ken Tries Goodbye, Why Not Hedge Funds
James Sugrue won last year’s Amateur British Open and his whole 2020 was planned out – Augusta in April, the US Open in June, and turning pro in July. Then Covid happened, and his best-laid plans were like the rest of us… put on hold.
70 years since it was last played @ Portmarnock, when Ireland’s Max McCready by US Amateur Champ, Willie Turnesa; history repeats & Ireland’s James Sugrue wins #TheAmateur for 2019 by 2 holes against Scotland’s Euan Walker. What an achievement…..and WHAT an atmosphere!???????????????????????????????????????? pic.twitter.com/9v6AINz5b9
