Fergal O'Leary

Fergal hails from Dublin but lives in Boston. He’s a self-confessed golf course addict, who completed playing the Top 100 ranked courses in the United States in just 4 years at 28 years of age.

In August 2015, aged 32, Fergal became the youngest person and the first Irishman to play the World Top 100 ranked courses. Since moving to the US, he's become a panellist with Golf Magazine. He has a +1 handicap and is a proud member of Portmarnock Golf Club.
