Augusta and Kerry jerseys. It’s a bizarre connection that we don’t quite understand, but love nonetheless. The only reasoning behind it? Kerry people are absolutely everywhere. Seriously. EVERYWHERE!
Last night Sergio Garcia finally won his first major championship and I don’t think anyone in the golfing community will begrudge him that green jacket. He’s been the bridesmaid for countless major championships down through the years, famously falling short to our own Padraig Harrington at both Carnoustie in 2007 and Oakland Hills in 2008. So it’s only fitting that a player of his quality finally won himself golf’s ultimate prize on the 60th birthday of his late friend and idol, Seve Ballesteros.
While most fans would have had their eyes fixed on the mouthwatering duel between Sergio and Justin Rose for most of the evening, up ahead one Kerry man managed to get himself up close to the action as he followed Rory McIlroy and Matt Kuchar for their round. The identity of this rogue is still unknown, but he’s managed to complete quite an achievement in his own right. Kerry jerseys have now featured at Augusta four out of the last five years ever since making their debut back in 2012.
Quite an accomplishment, and it never fails to bring a smile to your face when you see them pop up on the TV here at home.

They are some chancers those Kerry lads. Long may it continue!
