The Carr Mara uses a Stableford method of scoring where each net par receives 2 points, net bogey 1 point, double bogey or higher 0 points, then a net birdie gets 3 points and an eagle 5 points. It’s a fun system that allows a player to scoop it up after a net double bogey (which many were made under these extreme conditions). The event now moves to The Olympic Club in 2013 a year after the 2012 US Open is hosted at Olympic. I figure all of these clubs will have tremendous interest in coming west to the OC to play our famed Lake course a year after a new Open champion is crowned!

These are a few of the shots provided to me by County Sligo- Quite a beautiful spot in Rosses Point!!
