Hugh O'Connor is an Irish student, stand-up comedian, and avid golfer/cricketer/snookerer living in Dublin. He has been commentating on golf and cricket in his living room to the annoyance of his family for over a decade, and is hoping he'll be able to find a more appreciative audience for his musings. He is a member in Woodbrook Golf Club, which hosted the Irish Open throughout the '60s and '70s, and in Mount Juliet, host of the '93, '94, & '95 Irish Opens, as well as the 2002 and 2004 WGC American Express Championships.
His cricket is mainly played on the beach in Derrynane and any cricket ground he can sneak into.
He currently plays off a handicap of 7, but hopefully won't for much longer. His initial ambition is to get to 0.4, in order to enter the qualifying for the Open Championship.
After that he'll be ready to open the batting and bowling for Ireland, once he's asked.
