With his run to the semi-finals of the 2009 Irish national championship, Brendan O’Donoghue confirmed that he would finish the season top of the national rankings and book his place on the main tour for 2009/10.
Brendan’s début season on the tour was a disappointing one, four round one exits bookended by victories in both the season-opening Shanghai Masters and the concluding World Championship. Hopefully he will have learned a lot from playing at this standard and he will be better prepared when he next makes it back into the tour as a result.
