Killiney's Nigel Duke won the Munster Seniors Amateur Open in Lee Valley, beating Maurice Kelly (Naas) on the countback after both golfers shot a one over par 73.  The weather in Lee Valley was much improved for the second round, but no one managed to break par for the second successive day. 

Duke was one of four overnight leaders after they shot a level par 72 on the first round.  After the second round he was tied with Maurice Kelly when both golfers shot a 73 to finish the championship on +1.  With both golfers having carded scores of 72,73, Duke won thanks to his one under par back nine.  That included birdies on the 11th and the 14th.  Maurice Kelly was one shot worse off on his back nine.  His round included four birdies and four bogies, but he added a fifth bogey on the par four 17th to record a level par back nine.  Barry O'Leary (Greystones) was third after finished on +2 and John Mitchell (Tramore) was fourth on +4.  The Munster Veterans title went to Maurice Kelly.
