Byrne Wins Munster Under 14 Title​

​Sparkling 66 see's Waterford golfer take the win

  • 01 November 2018

Alex Byrne shot a very impressive three under par 66 to win the Munster Boys Under 14 Amateur Open at Lahinch.  The final event of the Munster calendar saw a full field of 72 golfers compete in testing conditions on Lahinch’s Castle course.  Very heavy rain affected all but the last two groups, but that didn’t deter the field, with six players shooting par or better.  The Castle course in Lahinch was in great condition with qualifying conditions offering the field one final opportunity for a handicap cut this year.  Byrne, from Waterford, opened with three birdies in a row from the second to the fifth and turned on -3.  He bogied the tenth and twelfth, but recovered with birdies on the 15th and the 18th to get back to -3 and post the winning score.  Joshua Berry (Doncaster) was second with 67 and Darcy Hogg took third place with a level par 69.  Finn Dobbin (Malone) won the best under 13 prize while Jack Murphy (Douglas) took the best under 12 prize. 

The Munster Under 13 Close also took place and that was won by Eoghan Cassidy (Kinsale) who shot an impressive 67 (-2).
