Cork’s Hugh Nolan picks up second gold medal at World Transplant Games

Cork’s Hugh Nolan was back on the top step of the podium at the World Transplant Games.

The Doneraile Golfer picked up a gold medal after a one over par round of 71 saw him pick up 33 points. His Irish team mate Nick Heather won silver with 32 points.

The kidney transplant recipient had won the pairs event on Monday with team mate and fellow Corkman Pat O’Sullivan.

Speaking afterwards, Hugh said “”the course was very tricky today, it has tight tree lined fairways that punish any stray shots. I’d like to thank my nephew Eoghan for travelling to Australia to support me, and my playing partners including Nick and his family for their excellent support all day. I’d also like to thank my work colleagues for covering to allow me to make the trip. And of course, my kidney donor for making it all possible.”

Ireland’s medal tally is now 3 gold, 5 silver and one bronze.
