Maurice Kelly, the current and five time Irish Seniors Close Champion - who had a distinguished career for Ireland at Seniors level has passed away.​

He captured the 2018 Irish Seniors Close at Enniscrone in July, finishing six shots clear of the field. Kelly had previously won the Irish Seniors Close in 2009, 2010, 2014 and 2015. His triumph at Enniscrone marked his fifth victory in the event making him the most successful player in the championship since it was introduced in 2009.

He was a stalwart of many Ireland senior teams capturing both the Seniors Home Internationals and European Seniors Team Championships multiple times.

We extend our sincerest sympathies to his family and friends at this difficult time.
