New President doesn’t mince his words

JIM MCGOVERN was elected President of the Golfing Union of Ireland at the Union’s AGM in County Meath and, almost immediately, said he wanted the game to evolve and start encouraging as many young people as possible, for the betterment of the clubs.

“I hope that clubs can get enough memberships to make ends meet and survive,” said McGovern. “I’m the oldest of our four-ball and the rest are no spring chickens either. Young people have too much to do now. The time involved in playing a round of golf is too long.”

He added: “I’m looking forward to serving the Union as an ambassador, meeting new people and listening to people to find out their views on how golf can be improved.”

McGovern assumes the presidency after years of voluntary service within the game.
