McNulty out to make his mark in Mauritius

Mark McNulty is hoping to go one better at this year’s MCB Tour Championship – Mauritius after his runner-up finish in 2017.

The Irishman, winner of the JELD-WEN Tradition in 2007, finished second to last year’s winner Thaworn Wiratchant – his second runner-up result that season.

McNulty was runner-up to Phil Golding at the Swiss Seniors Open earlier that year, and he finished seventh in July when he returned to Golf Club Bad Ragaz in 2018.

The short-game specialist also took seventh place on the Duke’s Course at Woburn Golf Club at this year’s Travis Perkins Masters.

The 64 year old claimed a second-successive South African Senior Open title in October and cannot wait to carry his impressive form into the final two events of the Staysure Tour season.

“I’ve really enjoyed playing on this Tour for the last two seasons,” said McNulty. “The results I have achieved have proved to myself that I’m still able to compete to a very high standard.

“There was some real excitement earlier this year when it was announced that we would have two weeks in the Indian Ocean and we are grateful to Mauritius Commercial Bank for giving us the opportunity to spend a fortnight in paradise.

“The hospitality we receive in Mauritius has been second to none, and we are sure of the same reception when we travel over to Seychelles for the final event of the season.”

McNulty carded rounds of 66-68-67 as he finished on a 15 under par total on the Legends Course at Constance Belle Mare Plage in 2017.

“It’s a course that really suits my eye and I feel comfortable playing in the heat we get to enjoy at that time of year,” said McNulty. “Having recently defended my South African Seniors Open title, I’m feeling positive about my game and hope to finish the year strongly.”
