Challoner wins Munster Boys Under 14 in Tralee

​Jack Murphy wins Munster Boys U13 Close title​

  • 25 April 2019

Galway Bay's Adam Challoner shot a two under par 70 today to win the Munster Boys Under 14 Amateur Open.  The teenager went around the Tralee links in 70 strokes, which included five birdies.  Challoner had a double bogey on the tricky 17th hole but recovered with a birdie on the 18th to become the clubhouse leader.  The birdie on the 18th proved crucial as he would end up winning by one over second placed Aiden O'Carroll (Powerscourt).  Sean Keeling (Roganstown) was third after finishing with a three over par 75 after many of the later starters struggled with wind and light rain.


Jack Murphy (Douglas) won the Munster Under 13 Close Championship which was also held in Tralee today.  Murphy carded a two over par 74 to win by two strokes from Tralee's Mark Gazi.  Over 100 golfers entered the championships, which was played on the world famous Arnold Palmer designed links.  The course was in great condition and Munster Golf Chairman Jim Long thanked everyone for their help in a very successful start to the 2019 championships.
