The matter can be looked at independently now, not influenced by that partciular issue. ”

However, the fact that the ground has received so much public money is bound to lead to calls for the GAA to allow other sports to be played at Croke. When work on the redevelopment of Lansdowne Road begins in 2006, Ireland’s international football and rugby teams will be without a major venue.

Hopefully each and every day it’ll feel better. ”

Woods is trying for a third successive victory in the event, but failure to do
so would leave him without a strokeplay title for the first time since 1996. European Ryder Cup team members Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald and Miguel Angel Jimenez are among those just one behind leader Hamilton. “If you can’t putt on these greens, you just can’t putt, because these greens are spectacular,” said the 38-year-old Hamilton.

In a field containing 44 of the world’s top 50 players, US Open champion Retief Goosen fired a 68, with fellow South African and world number three Ernie Els a shot further back.

United Won’t Be Alone Any More
Washington Post – Sep 30, 2004

Despite all evidence to the contrary, Thomas says he found it difficult to adapt to his new-found leading role. “Dai Young, Scott Gibbs, Rob Howley, Scott Quinnell and Neil Jenkins all went, all of a sudden you looked round and there weren’t that many senior players,” said Thomas.
