    Like what i have seen so far from him, which is very little from the footage i watched but thats the way it is. Hope he can get a top5 or sneak a win soon.

    His T9 at the Dunhill links was a better finish than any of his 11 events on the challenge tour since turning pro.

    Seems like a bit of a birdie machine which is a good sign, doubles appear quite often to which means he hasn't quite started racking up the top 10's yet.

    An exciting prospect and very confident player, looking forward to his continued progress. Shame no Q school again this year.

    He is -6 through 9 today on the Challenge Tour and in a 4 way tie at the top of the leaderboard. All the others on -6 have completed their rounds


    EDIT: Turns out that was a mistake on the European Tour website. He was actually -4 after 9 which is the score he finished on

    Superb recovery today to shoot 67 after having an 8 on his front 9.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,344 ✭✭✭ Speak Now


    67s all the way for John, finished t3.

    Only 2 shots off the winner, oh what might have been with 14 shots on hole 8 over the weekend.

    Eagle finish 🙂

    The top 20 on the Road to Mallorca at the end of the season all earn promotion to the European Tour, John is currently 69th having jumped 19 places with his 3rd place finish this weekend. He's only played 11 tournaments though so getting the tour card this year may be too much of a challenge



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,344 ✭✭✭ Speak Now


    69 and T17 after competing his delayed round 1 in Challenge Costa Bravo today, starts his second round soon.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,344 ✭✭✭ Speak Now


    Disappointing second round of 76.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,344 ✭✭✭ Speak Now


    Missed the cut this week unfortunately.

    Projected to drop from 69th to 70th.

    Top 70 would give him decent status for next seasons challenge tour.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,344 ✭✭✭ Speak Now


    Despite the missesd cut he didn't drop any places so secures a good status on next seasons challenge tour for his first full season as a pro. Great achievement considering he only turned pro 5 months ago.

    John will be in the Pebble Beach pro-am! It does mean he'll be missing the start of the Challenge tour in South Africa but hopefully that won't impact him getting a full European (DP) tour card





  • Registered Users Posts: 2,367 ✭✭✭ The Big Easy


    Well he could always win that and get a full PGA tour card!



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,765 ✭✭✭ big_drive


    Big one this week for John Murphy, will be very interesting to see how he goes

    I've checked online but can't see who he's paired with (a celeb or just a random rich amateur)



  • Registered Users Posts: 821 ✭✭✭ paulos53


    He has an all Irish fourball for the week which will hopefully help him.

    Himself and Gerry McManus are paired with Seamus Power and Dermot Desmond



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,765 ✭✭✭ big_drive


    Should definitely make him more relaxed.

    Those boys have big influence too, making a connection with them won't do him any harm down the line.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,009 ✭✭✭ CMcsporty


    What are the strongest parts of his game?



  • Registered Users Posts: 695 ✭✭✭ fearruanua


    +3 after his opening round on the more difficult Spyglass.

    Back to the grind for John in South Africa


    Made the 54 hole cut in the Dimension Data Pro-Am but finished in 47th a full 17 shots behind the winner. Next up is the Cape Town open



  • Registered Users Posts: 195 ✭✭ Salvadoor


    4 under after 2 rounds today leaving John one inside the projected cut mark



  • Registered Users Posts: 195 ✭✭ Salvadoor


    Solid 18th place finish by John, it moves him up 21 places to 39th on the Race to Mallorca



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,732 ✭✭✭ ssbob


    I think he is a brilliant talent - between himself and Tom McKibbon coming through and James Sugrue on the Alps tour as well - we have a new generation of Irish players who will hopefully start climbing the rankings.



  • Registered Users Posts: 695 ✭✭✭ fearruanua




  • Registered Users Posts: 195 ✭✭ Salvadoor


    18th place for John, disappointing final round 73 after a cracking 3rd round 64.


    Up 7 places to 32nd on Order of Merit



  • Registered Users Posts: 542 ✭✭✭ CSWS101


    Anyone know where he has to finish to get his DP card?



  • Registered Users Posts: 1 antics212


    Top-20 on the Road to Mallorca get full cards for 2023.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,367 ✭✭✭ The Big Easy


    Playing the Byron Nelson on the PGA Tour this week, I presume on a sponsor's exemption. Good chance to boost his career and profile with a good week.

    One hot week and he can skip a couple of levels pretty sharpish!

    Think this was after he won the Byron Nelson award in college?
