HOGAN SUPREME
Tullamore's Margaret Hogan rolled back the years and won the Irish Ladies Strokeplay championship on the links at Portmarnock today. The Co. Offaly legend fired fourteen under par 148 for the three rounds and won the championship for the first time in 27 years, having taken three in a row from 1977 - 1979. In the meantime, she has been runner-up in the championship on no fewer than six occasions. Margaret Hogan was chased home by the other prolific gatherer of Irish titles, Geraldine Ward of the home club. 2003 and 2004 champion, Geraldine had hand surgery in May this year but returned 153 in breezy conditions to finish in the top two for the fourth straight year. Three times Irish matchplay queen, Margaret Hogan has now won Irish titles in four different decades.(posted July 10, 2006)
